Our Vision and operating model

One Team, Ambitious for South Somerset

We are putting our residents and businesses firmly at the centre of everything we do.  We have developed our vision for a transformed council with involvement from our staff and therefore South Somerset District Council will become ONE TEAM. A team which is ambitious for South Somerset.

The transformation programme is redesigning our entire operating model, modernising and future-proofing the organisation to protect and improve the services the council delivers to its communities and customers. It will make the council financially more sustainable, provide the ability to continuously improve and adapt in the future, whilst delivering increased income to support council services through a more commercial approach.

Our vision

At South Somerset District Council we aim to employ a workforce representative of the community we serve and are committed to equality of opportunity for our staff and customers.
