New Somerset West and Taunton Council

11 April 2019

From 1 April the new Council was created by The Somerset West and Taunton (Local Government Changes) Order 2018.

The SWT Constitution which set out how the Council operates, how decisions are made and the procedures that are followed, was approved by the Shadow Council on 26 March 2019.

Residents or anyone who has business with SWT will notice this name replacing the old Taunton Deane and West Somerset names on things like bank statements as any money paid or received will be managed by the new council.
