District Councillors May Missive

Home » Latest News » District Councillors May Missive

We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support in the election earlier this month. It is certainly an interesting time to be involved in politics with national issues clearly influencing local matters with the outcome of the election reflecting this.

The Liberal Democrats have an outstanding majority in South Somerset District Council with over two thirds majority and as such will be dominating decisions made during the next four years.

However, we have always said that we are here to represent local issues and support matters which residents find important to our ward. We are aware of the challenges facing local businesses, tourism, planning, employment and environment and how important it is to be responsive to all community needs and services.

As you are aware we are in a newly formed ward with Curry Rivel now combining with Langport and Huish Episcopi and as such we will both be working together over the next few years to ensure all the diverse aspects of these areas are represented and supported.

Please do get in touch if we can help in anyway. Our contact details are as follows: Clare — clare.paul@southsomerset.gov.uk or 07879 423117 Tiffany — tiffany.osborne@southsomerset.gov.uk or 07876 565546
