About us

We are a pro-business Council who are ambitious for growth and transformation. We are committed to digital inclusion and providing a range of services to meet the needs of our customers, residents, staff, visitors, businesses, partners and elected members.

Sedgemoor District Council aims to create opportunity - whether that be in more housing, new, higher paid jobs - a place to grow and learn.  We are keen to deliver our plans and strategies to meet local needs, whilst embracing the challenges and opportunities from the nationally-significant infrastructure project - Hinkley Point C.   Our main challenge is to reduce deprivation and increase prosperity, so that our residents have an improved quality of life.

Sedgemoor District Council provides a varied range of services to local residents, businesses and visitors. Some services we have a duty to provide (known as statutory services) and some are provided because the Council and the areas population feel they are important.
