More than 100 representatives from grassroots councils across Somerset attended February’s virtual conference to learn more about plans for the new Somerset Council that will come into being in April 2023.

Guest speakers from unitary councils shared their experiences. They included Annie Child from Salisbury City Council and Helen Ball from Shrewsbury Town Council.

Also presenting from the Local Government Reorganisation (LGR) programme were Alyn Jones, LGR Programme Director, and Sara Skirton who leads on Local Community Networks (LCNs). The event was chaired by Cllr Faye Purbrick, the county council’s lead member for LGR.
