SDC response to SCC announcement re unitary status

Sedgemoor District Council is surprised and disappointed with the announcement from Somerset County Council and the way that their intentions have been communicated via the media rather than in a collaborative manner. 02/05/18

At the forefront of all our considerations will be what is best for the residents of Sedgemoor and the wider Somerset communities.

Whilst the last debate on this subject was ten years ago, the business case for one or more unitary authorities for the geographical area of Somerset was not proven, nor wanted by the community. A referendum was held and 84% of the respondents voted No.

We recognise that Somerset County Council have severe financial pressures and have offered help by devolution of various services to districts. SDC reiterates its long-held position of never turning down an income generation or cost reduction opportunity without first considering any business case.

This would mean proper, thorough and meaningful dialogue with all councils, their elected members and our MPs about how to move forward constructively in a timely fashion, where the interests of the communities are at the heart of the way forward.

Sedgemoor District Council is performing well, delivering excellent services and a sound financial basis.
