City, town and parish councils

Stronger Somerset will help the two new unitary councils build new relationships with our city, town and parish councils in a number of ways:

  • Developing and agreeing a Charter that it will help establish and articulate a strong collaborative relationship between town, parish and city councils and the new unitary councils.
  • An open-ended offer to work with localities to create Locality Agreements. These can vary significantly in scope and scale, to reflect local circumstances and ambitions.
  • Identifying community networks that build on existing networks, where parishes and communities already come together, and draw in wider public agencies including Health and Social Care.

We would very much value your input to help develop these proposals further.
