Yeovil Refresh: public realm consultation - CLOSED
South Somerset District Council plans to regenerate the town centre of Yeovil through multiple projects as part of the adopted Yeovil Refresh strategy.
As part of this, the council is looking to enhance the public realm, including the streets and spaces, to make Yeovil more attractive for residents, businesses and tourists.
The purpose of this consultation is to provide local people and stakeholders the opportunity to view and comment on the emerging public realm designs.
Your comments and feedback will help shape the proposals.
The plans can be viewed online and you can complete our online questionnaire between the consultation period.

Public Space Protection Order proposals for Yeovil town centre - CLOSED
We are seeking your views on proposals to control the anti-social behaviour of street drinking of alcohol and also street begging.
In order to control the street drinking of alcohol and street begging, we would be looking to make two separate Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO). Each nuisance needs its own PSPO.
A PSPO can last no longer than three years but can be renewed if necessary. Failure to comply with the order can result in a fine or a fixed penalty notice.
