The new unitary Somerset Council launched on 1 April 2023. The new unitary council will bring together the services provided by the four district councils in Somerset (Mendip, Sedgemoor, Somerset West and Taunton (SWT), and South Somerset) alongside the services provided by Somerset County Council and Somerset Waste Partnership.
The new Council will continue to work alongside the existing town and parish councils and their role is enhanced through new Local Community Networks.
The new website will replace the 6 websites that are currently being used by residents in Somerset.
On 1 April there will be one website for all your council services. The new Somerset Council website will use this web address: www.somerset.gov.uk.
