Final recommendations published for South Somerset

The Commission has published its final recommendations for new electoral arrangements for South Somerset District Council. We are proposing that South Somerset should be represented by 60 councillors in future. Our recommendations mean that those councillors should represent seven three councillor wards, 11 two-councillor wards and 17 one councillor wards across the district. The Commission has now completed its review. We are extremely grateful to the people of South Somerset who took the time and effort to send us their views. The Commission considered every piece of evidence it received before finalising these recommendations. In the map below, you can explore our final recommendations (in red) and see how they have changed from the current arrangements (in blue) and the changes we have made as a result of our consultation on our draft recommendations (in black). You can also read the final recommendations report and find links to other useful information in the box at the bottom of this page.
