Has SSDC Pulled a Fast One and Closed Langport Community Office?

Home » Latest News » Has SSDC Closed Langport Office?

Has the SSDC closed the Langport Community Office and neglected to tell anyone?
Well it is no longer listed on their website and you cannot find it on their latest info leaflet:
'Ways to access SSDC services' (see downloadable PDF attached to this article).

Before Christmas there were rumours that the South Somerset District Council (SSDC) might be shutting the Langport Community Office, this listing for the office seemed to briefly 'disappear' from the website only to reappear once more. Well folks it seems to be gone.

The following statement was available at the time of it's opening: 'The Langport Community Office, was officially opened in April 2004, as a valuable new focal point for both residents and visitors to the area.'

Has the help desk for South Somerset District Council at Langport been closed?

SSDC on their website say "we know for many people using the website and phone are easy ways to contact us, but this doesn't suit everyone, so we maintain a number of local Community Offices"...... well not apparently in Langport anymore.
