Hits: 2173

Somerset County Council is reviewing its funding of local bus services, and is seeking the views of the public before a final decision is made. It is possible to complete the survey online or by requesting a paper form (which must be done by 5th December 2014). For full details click here.

Please note that section of the 99 bus route from Taunton to Chard is unaffected by the review. It is only the Chard to Yeovil section on Saturdays that might be affected (with the possibility of a reduction in the frequency of services).

Somerset Library Services Consultation

Hits: 2148

On 3rd November 2014 Somerset County Council started a 10 week consultation on the future of Somerset Library Services. The feedback from this consultation will be used to create a final set of proposals for decision in early 2015. 

The purpose of this consultation is to understand as many views as possible on a series of proposals for 2015/2016 to change the way the library service will operate. These proposals will see no libraries close but will make savings of almost £500,000, helping to protect the most vulnerable in Somerset.

However, the proposals may affect the mobile library service. The Council wants to ensure that all those potentially affected have a chance to comment on the proposals before any decisions are made. Details of the proposed changes to the mobile library service and the potential impact of the changes on current stops are available at

If the changes are implemented as proposed, Combe St. Nicholas and Wadeford will lose their mobile library service because the mobile library stops are less than three miles from a library building.
