  • In Bloom Success for Midsomer Norton

    In Bloom Success for Midsomer Norton

    Returning to the South West In Bloom Competition, after an absence of two years, Midsomer Norton was crowned not just with a Gold medal for their entry but was also overall Small Town Category winner, being presented with the Preece Cup for 2014. The town beat off stiff competition from the towns of Hayle, Seaton, Sherborne, Glastonbury and Amesbury. The town’s In Bloom Team was also awarded two prestigious discretionary awards - the first was for the River Somer Project and the second was for their entry portfolio which was awarded the South West Tourism Salver. None of this would have been possible without the sterling efforts of the town’s 11 ‘It's Your Neighbourhood’ entries which also achieved excellent results – including six Outstanding Awards.

    Core Strategy Adopted and Neighbourhood Plan Emerging

    After a long period during which it may have felt like housing developments seemed to be permitted everywhere 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. The Core Strategy puts in place a planning framework to guide change and development in the District over the next 20 years and beyond and looks at the broad locations for new developments.

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!
