Sedgemoor District Council’s annual budget consultation has begun – and the authority is calling on people to have their say.

The authority’s budget consultation will decide how the council’s proportion of council tax will be spent on services for the community.

No final decisions will be taken until February next year, but the consultation is being carried out to ‘ensure the views of the public are considered’ by councillors ahead of any vote.

The survey will see questionnaires sent out to 10,000 randomly-selected residents.

A council spokesman said: “The council continues to work within a very tight budget and will be reviewing its services to make sure that every penny is spent wisely.
