Accessibility Audits

We are looking to carry out accessibility audits.

An accessibility audit is the assessment of a building or service to see how accessible it is to disabled people. This may be a visit to a building, review of a website or testing of a service, for example, a telephone helpline.

We have launched a new survey as a way of gaining a better understanding of what would be important to you. This will help us to identify potential organisations to approach and offer our audit services too.

Unitary Consultation

Consultation on the future of local government in Somerset

Residents and businesses in Somerset are currently served by a two-tier system of local government. Somerset County Council is responsible for services such as adult and children’s social care, maintaining roads and libraries, and the District Councils – Mendip, Sedgemoor, Somerset West and Taunton and South Somerset - are responsible for services such as rubbish collection, housing and planning and environmental health.
