Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council



Precept Consultation- opportunity to have your say for those unable to attend one of the drop-in sessions

As residents will have seen in the media, Somerset Council are facing enormous financial challenges and are having to make some difficult decisions about services it provides. 

The Town Council has been asked to consider taking over/funding some of the services that Somerset Council will no longer be able to fund.

For the Town Council to be able fund any additional service, it will have to significantly increase its budget and Precept request, which will increase residents Council Tax payments.

The Town Council is holding a consultation to understand what residents’ priorities are, so the information can be considered when Councillors make a final decision on what services to help fund/manage.  The Town Council is unlikely to be able to cover all the service costs, so the community’s views are vital.

If you are unable to attend one of the drop-in sessions please download and complete the form below and return via email to info@burnham-highbridge-tc.gov.uk or to The Old Courthouse, Jaycroft Road, Burnham-on-Sea, TA8 1LE by Midday on 19th December 2023.  Forms received after this date will not be considered. Please remember to attach the completed form to your email before sending.
