Influencing central Government and get a fair deal for South Somerset

We will do this by:

  • maintaining a leading role nationally, and working with other councils to make sure the rural voice is heard by London based civil servants
  • continuing to use our MPs to influence Government successfully for a fair deal for  South Somerset
  • continuing to lobby for business rates to be controlled locally to tackle the problem of empty shops on our high streets
  • continuing to promote South Somerset as a place of national strategic business importance (Augusta Westland / RNAS Yeovilton)
  • continuing to ensure we have a seat at the regional and national tables whenever decisions specifically affecting South Somerset are being made.
