Stronger Somerset Update

District Council publish expert analysis of county council restructure proposal

We wanted to let you know that an expert analysis of Somerset County Council’s One Somerset proposal for local government reform has been published today (click).

The analysis has been conducted on the districts’ behalf by leading management consultancy PA Consulting, who were lead advisors on the Stronger Somerset business case. They looked at Somerset County Council’s One Somerset case as part of a “technical assessment” required by the government consultation process.

The analysis will inform each district council’s response to the current government consultation.

Sustrans Path

This is to update you on the path closure between Bawdrip and Chedzoy. As you will be aware we stopped the resurfacing work while we waited for the ground at the eastern end to dry out. Our contractor has provisionally scheduled a restart w/c 12th April subject to a site inspection next week. We hope that the path will be reopened by 26th April we will do so sooner if ground conditions permit
