    Core Strategy Adopted and Neighbourhood Plan Emerging

    After a long period during which housing developments seemed to be permitted in and around Midsomer Norton and the Somer Valley, the local Planning Authority, Bath and North East Somerset Council, adopted its Core Strategy on 10th July 2014. In order to shape and influence the location, nature and density of any future development, the Town Council is creating its own Neighbourhood Development Plan, which, when read with the Core Strategy and the national planning polices, will effectively provide a blueprint for future development and will, through consultation with the community, be a locally owned plan that reflects what people in and around the town want and need. For more information go the link under the Community tab at the top of the page.

    New Amenity Block open!

    A new multi-purpose block at West Clewes Recreation Ground has been completed as part of Midsomer Norton Town Council and the Midsomer Norton Recreation Ground Trust development of the community facility. The block makes storage space available to the Council and to the Recreation Ground Trust and enables equipment used at the venue and elsewhere to be securely and safely stored. A useful working space has also been included for event management in the new building along with power and light which enables it to be used all year round.

New web site for Midsomer Norton Town Council

New web site for Midsomer Norton Town Council

To provide a better source of information, the Town Council web site has been redesigned.  Working with Skills on Toast, a Bristol based web design company, the Council Officers have developed a fresh new look and revised content to better meet the needs of the people who visit our site. This involves re-organising some sections and pages and updating the back-end of the site to be more responsive and allow us to maximise its capability.

The Midsomer Norton LIFE App

In addition, the Town Council has invested in the development of an App which will provide information, allow messages to be tailored to individual needs and also enable some targeted push messages containing offers for users.  Download your free version – the more users we have the more we can develop it!
