Three opportunities to join the DoE adventure

Somerset County Council is looking for people to fill three new exciting Duke of Edinburgh Award volunteering opportunities. See further information.


We evaluate local planning applications and work with the local police, district council officers, and neighbourhood watch groups. 

We set an annual local rate to cover the Council’s operating costs.


Our role includes initiating projects for maintaining and repairing parish facilities.

We consult with the District Council on maintaining, repairing, and improving highways, drainage, footpaths, public transport, and street cleaning.


We are also responsible for conservation, including trees and listed buildings, and environmental issues.
