East Brent Parish Council

Welcome to East Brent Parish Council Website

Our Objective in designing this website was twofold.  Firstly The Parish Council wanted to create a website that informed all parishioners and interested parties of the work of the council and to make more readily available public documents which had previously only been available as hard copies upon request.

Secondly, we wanted to create a wider community site where organisations within the parish could also provide information about the work that they undertake.  We hope that this section of the website will grow and provide feedback to the parish council and inform future decisions to be made.

We also hope that organisations within the parish will find it a useful resource to  enable them to broadcast the voluntary work that they are undertaking within the community.

If you would like your village organisation to be included within the website please email webadmin@eastbrentparishcounil.org.uk

The website was created under the direction of a sub committee of The Parish Council, I should like to thank the committee for their hard work in creating what I hope parishioners will find a useful resource.

All parishioners in the villages of East Brent, Rooksbridge and Edingworth are stakeholders in our community and we would welcome comments on how we can improve the website.

Please email The Clerk at theclerk@eastbrentparishcouncil.org.uk with any feedback that you might have.

I do hope that you find our website helpfull and informative.  

Chairman, East Brent Parish Council.

Your say on how your council tax is spent ……

Sedgemoor District Council wants residents to have their say on how Sedgemoor District Council should spend its proportion of the Council Tax in its annual budget consultation.     The budget cycle in Sedgemoor starts now, with the final decisions on budgets are taken in mid-February 2019.


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.   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.   The questionnaire will also be available to complete online at the following web address:   www.sedgemoor.gov.uk/budgetconsultation.  The consultation period will run from until October 19, 2018.


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 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 is carried out by SDC staff and involves 10,000 questionnaires being sent out to a random sample of Sedgemoor residents.


For further information or to request a questionnaire please call 0300 303 7800.
