Waste Notice

With the continuing hot weather, Somerset Waste Partnership and our collections contractor Kier have agreed that all waste collections from now on will start at the earlier time of 6am to help ease the pressure on crews and vehicles. We would be grateful if you could let your residents know of the change, which will stay in place until cooler weather returns, and of the need to ensure all waste containers are out on time. 
While we will always do our best to keep parishes informed of waste changes, you may find it useful to bookmark the SWP website to see news announcements:
www.somersetwaste.gov.uk

Have Your Say

Have your say on draft recommendations for Somerset West and Taunton

In May 2018, the government decided to create a new local authority called Somerset West and Taunton Council. The council will replace the existing authorities of West Somerset Council and Taunton Deane Borough Council.
The Commission is now carrying out an electoral review of the new council to decide the number of councillors that should be elected to the authority as well as the names and boundaries of council wards.
We have an open mind about further suggestions from local people to change and improve these recommendations. We will consider all the submissions we receive whoever they are from and whether your evidence applies to the whole of Somerset West and Taunton or just a part of the area.
Below, you can see our proposals for new ward boundaries (in red) and search across the whole of Somerset West and Taunton, even down to street level. You can also click on any ward to find out how many voters are included in it and how many councillors we propose should represent it.
You can submit comments to us or upload a document by clicking on the 'Have your say' link Have your say. You can also draw your own boundaries and annotate the map by clicking on the button.
This stage of the consultation closes on 27 August 2018.

Police warning


BCU21 15082018 warning message


This message is put out at the request of our corporate communications department following a spate of vulnerable victim frauds. There are a number of `stories' that are used, one describes being from the NCA investigating the bank, others refer to errors on computers etc.

How Safe Is Your Private Water Supply?


Having a private water supply can be a real boon but private water supplies often pose a health risk because they are not managed or tested in the same way as public supplies. Common problems include bacteria, heavy metals such as iron, manganese, aluminium, lead and arsenic, as well as nitrates, nitrites, ammonia and other minerals. Sometimes the contamination may affect the appearance, taste or smell of the water but it is often not obvious. The best way to be sure your supply is fit for use is to have regular testing carried out.

Somerset Scientific Services, part of Somerset County Council, have been supplying impartial advice and testing for over 50 years. Contact them for information or a quote for a comprehensive UKAS accredited testing package.

Support Local Producers


New shop to promote Exmoor Food and Crafts
A recently formed group of local food producers and crafts people is opening a brand new shop in The Avenue, Minehead on 15th January.

 Following the recent decision to close the Exmoor Producers Association Shop on Friday Street Minehead, some of its members, along with a many new producers got together to form a new ‘not for profit’ community group.

 Pam Barr herself a local pork farmer from Little Oak Farm, is chairing the new group called Exmoor Food & Crafts. Pam said, “There is real enthusiasm and excitement among our members - the new shop which will allow a great platform for locally produced goods. We’ll be offering a great selection of Exmoor and Greater Exmoor handmade crafts and fabulous food items including honey, jam, chutney and meat.”

 Local producers who might be interested in selling their goods though the new shop are invited email Pamela via info@exmoorfoodandcrafts.co.uk or pop in after 15th January.

 Dan James, Sustainable Economy Manager from Exmoor National Park said, “We’ve been delighted that this new group is going to promote local produce in this way. It is essential that residents and visitors can easily source the items being made here on Exmoor and the new shop will give a real focus for the wider activities of the group. ”

Exmoor National Park Local Plan


At its meeting on 4th July 2017, Exmoor National Park Authority resolved to adopt the Exmoor National Park Local Plan 2011-2031 (including minerals and waste policies), which wholly supersedes the saved policies of the previous Exmoor National Park Local Plan (2005). 

The Local Plan promotes sustainable development, which enables local communities and businesses to thrive, whilst conserving and enhancing the National Park’s special qualities. The Plan includes a vision, objectives, strategic priorities and also contains both strategic planning policies and development management policies, which will guide development and the use of land in Exmoor National Park until 2031. Now adopted, the Local Plan is the statutory development plan and forms the basis for planning decisions within Exmoor National Park.

The adopted Local Plan, together with its Policies Map and adoption statement, are available online.  Alternatively, the Local Plan and associated documents can be viewed at the offices of Exmoor National Park Authority and North Devon and West Somerset councils as indicated in the attached adoption statement. 
Anyone requiring further information on the Exmoor National Park Plan should contact localplan@exmoor-nationalpark.gov.uk or 01398 323665



Kind regards

David Wyborn

Head of Planning & Sustainable Development
