The Medium Term Financial Plan has been presented. Despite the decrease in Central Government funding the leading party remains confident that ambitious programmes such as Transformation, making staff savings without cutting services, and their Commercial Strategy, buying properties as assets in Yeovil High Street such as Marks and Spencer and Wilko for investments will in the long term deliver a sustainable council.

The Langport to Muchelney Cycleway has taken a step closer to being transferred from SSDC to local Town and Parish Council management. A survey has recently been undertaken and shows that the cycleway is increasingly being used by locals and visitors. The cycleway is part of the River Parrett Trail and if transferred the new management have said it will be essential to keep the track open and well maintained at all times of the year.
