Somerset West & Taunton Council are working with partners across the county to develop a Somerset Climate Emergency Strategy. Alongside this Strategy they are developing their own local action plan for Somerset West and Taunton as a Council and an area as a whole. Their local action plan will supplement the county-wide strategy with more specific and local priorities and actions. Both documents are being developed along the same timescales.

Timetable for the District and County Plans

  • Nov 2019 – Strategic Framework documents setting out early ideas
