Good Councillor guide

What can be done to address anti-social behaviour?  How can we help each other?

Did you know you can call Sedgemoor District Council or report it online or the Police?

Here are some interesting facts....

During 2018 and the first five months of 2019 Sedgemoor received one report of dog fouling, one report of urinating in public, one report of an abandoned vehicle, three reports of fly-tipping and one report of noise nuisance.

Avon and Somerset Police report one incident of anti-social behaviour in January 2018.

There is more reporting of anti-social behaviour on social media than either of the above official channels.

If it is not reported every time the problem will never disappear 

If it is not reported officially the problem is deemed not to exist.

Here is a three page on-line form on the Sedgemoor District Council website to report an incident of anti-social behaviour.

Call 101 to report it to Avon & Somerset Police

Dont delay, if you see it then do it today!

Don’t be fooled by Council Tax scammers


Sedgemoor District Council is warning residents not to be taken in by a company claiming to be acting on behalf of Sedgemoor District Council.  Residents have told us that they have received calls either asking for up-front fee via the residents bank account and card details in return for ‘lowering their council tax band’ or checking if they are on the correct council tax band.


This is NOT a phone call from Sedgemoor District Council.  Council Tax bands are set by the Valuation Office Agency and can only be changed under certain conditions. Details can be found at   If you think your band is wrong, contact the Valuation Office Agency - you will not be charged for the service.


If you are struggling to pay your Council Tax bill and need help, speak with a member of the Council Tax Team on who will be able to offer help and advice on 0300 303 7801.


If you have given over personal details, we would advise you to call the Police straight away on 101 and report the matter as an identity theft scam. The Police will also direct you to the Action Fraud helpline on 0300 123 2040.



Survey for Sedgemoor's Open Space, Sport and Recreation Study
 Invitation to complete the residents survey

Sedgemoor District Council is currently in the process of preparing an Open Space, Sport and Recreation Study for the District which incorporates a Playing Pitch Strategy, a Play audit, a Built Facilities assessment and an assessment of informal recreation space.

This study aims to understand the current quality and quantity of provision, the current level of use and demand of each site and the expected level of future demand based on population projections. The assessment results will form part of the evidence base needed to protect existing sites, identify additional needs, support funding bids and inform negotiations with developers when securing contributions towards open space, sport and recreation facilities.
