DID YOU KNOW?

That discussions are now at an advanced stage for the merger of our West Somerset Council (WSC) with Taunton Deane Borough Council (TDBC).  The reason for this situation is quite simply that WSC is deemed to be financially unsustainable and therefore unable to continue as a single entity.  The financial shortfall over the coming years is approximately £435,000 per annum (depends whom you talk to!).  Sensible steps have already been taken for joint administration management with TDBC.   

I believe that these merger proposals are contrary to good local democracy and will result in our WSC area being a “second class citizen”, the sheer size of TDBC and its proposed increase in housing development will further contribute to this.
