End of year report

South Somerset District Council (SSDC) is an ambitious and forward-thinking council that is committed to transforming, improving and adapting to be ready for the future. We place our residents and businesses firmly at the centre of everything we do and we are incredibly proud of the work we have achieved alongside our communities in 2018/19.

A balanced budget was delivered with no cuts to services while launching exciting regeneration projects which will support three of our key towns in South Somerset – Yeovil, Chard and Wincanton.

A 10-year Economic Development Strategy has been launched to ensure we are well-placed to attract new businesses, help start-ups and encourage diversity and innovation.

We are becoming a more commercial organisation, investing in projects that will provide essential income to pay for our highly-valued services. Alongside this we are transforming customer service with new technology, providing dedicated resource to support those who are most vulnerable, continuing our great work to alleviate homelessness and working hard to protect the environment.

This is all in addition to the excellent additional value we provide for residents including free school holiday Playdays, a superb network of parks and open spaces, waste and recycling collections, leisure, arts and entertainment services including swimming facilities at Wincanton and Yeovil, The Octagon Theatre and Westlands.

This achievements report provides you with an overview of just some of the great work being undertaken by SSDC as we continue to commit to our goals f being great to work for, excellent to work with, leading the way and delivering for our communities.
