SEDGEMOOR District Council is asking residents to have their say on how Sedgemoor District Council should spend its proportion of the Council Tax.

Sedgemoor District Council continues to work within a very tight budget and will be reviewing its services to make sure that every penny is spent wisely.

SDC gets approximately 9p in the £ from each pound paid in council tax, the other 91p being split between Somerset County Council, the Police, Fire and Rescue services and Parish/Town councils.

Sedgemoor has been carrying out an annual budget consultation exercise for several years, in order to ensure the views of the public are considered when making decisions regarding budgets and priorities.

Sedgemoor has been successful with its Budget Consultation in previous years, but is looking to sustain that success and improve further in order to give as large and wide a group as possible the opportunity to participate and have their say.

The budget consultation exercise involves 5,000 questionnaires being sent out to a random sample of Sedgemoor residents.

The questionnaire will also be available to complete online at the following web address: ultation.

You can also fill-in a questionnaire at Bridgwater Fair on Wednesday, 24th September, from 11am to 7pm at the Sedgemoor stand in West Street or drop into our Reception in Bridgwater House, King Square, Bridgwater and ask for a form.

The consultation period will run from now until October 24th, 2014.

For further information or to request a questionnaire please call 0845 408 2540.

Please take this opportunity to provide us with information to help us set the 2015/2016 budget.
