District Councillor Letter for Feb 2018
tiffany2

It's coming up to a busy time of year for SSDC. After the relative quietness of Christmas and the early New Year, February will see the approving of both the Council budget and Council Tax.

The Transformation process is still ongoing, impact reports on the A303 and housing strategy as well as the monitoring of performance and complaints, will be assessed, and the determination of district wide voluntary sector grants will be finalised. The draft Economic Development Strategy (EDS), which is currently open to public consultation until 25 January 2019, will also go to full council shortly and will determine the vision, key outcomes and priority themes which need to be delivered in South Somerset over the next 10 years.
Further to the Local Government Boundary Commission Review a new ward has been created which crosses both Areas North and East.
In order to retain Area based working it has been recommended that the newly created ward of Northstone/Ivelchester/St Michael's will be wholly within Area East and will now fall under their committee as from May 2019.

As previously mentioned, these new boundary changes directly affect Curry Rivel, which will now be amalgamated with Langport and Huish and become a two-councillor ward. Drayton will move to the Burrow Hill ward. Elections are scheduled for Thursday 2 May.
