I am the current  Liberal Democrat Councillor for the ward of Dunster & Timberscombe   but as you may be aware the Conservative-controlled Councils have decided to merge our  council to make the new council of Somerset West & Taunton.  The result of the New Council formation has resulted in Boundary Changes and the new  ward  Old Cleave and Distric.  Our Manifesto  includes a commitment to be Carbon Neutral by 2030 and I have been  active with this initiative in the council promoting  the rollout of a Electric Vehicle  charging network and have helped to secure £20000 of funding for this purpose, also the  network is the start of a larger project to make local public transport available and  frequent again with electric buses large and small and electric car share schemes.  I am also a rural housing network contact and active in sourcing land for affordable  housing and self-build projects.
