The ambitious proposal to transform local government in Somerset, end confusion for residents, give more power to communities and save tens of millions of pounds for improved frontline services is underway.
One Somerset proposes replacing the existing five councils in Somerset with a single council for the county. The Government is currently considering changes to the system of local councils in Somerset. This is a chance to replace the outdated structure of five councils with a new single, unitary council.
The One Somerset approach would put an end to confusion for residents, give greater powers to local communities, and free up millions of pounds in back office duplication that can be reinvested in frontline services.
