What we will deliver

Stronger Somerset will deliver:

  • Stronger local economies, generating wealth for local people, the wider region and UK economy
  • Great places to live, work and study, balancing new homes and facilities to support growing and existing communities
  • A Green Somerset achieving net zero carbon, creating new green businesses and jobs, and protecting our valuable environment
  • Excellent and affordable services, working in new ways to improve those services that people value most and are vital for our communities
  • Two new councils, one for Western Somerset and one for Eastern Somerset, replacing the existing five councils
  • £70m net benefits to local services over the first 5 years

The Government consultation on our plan closed on Monday 19 April.
