River Somer Project

River Somer Management Team

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Long term management and cleaning of the river Somer was voted as number one priority in July 2007 by our members.

Since then, having visited local stakeholders, the Society has concluded that whilst there are many bodies with some level of responsibility for the river, no single entity has been able to provide leadership and focus culminating in the transformation of the river bed in the spring of 2011.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have therefore created the River Somer Management Team – made up of representatives from all the main stakeholders: Chamber of Commerce , Redfield Residents Association, Midsomer Norton Society, B&NES Local partnerships, Midsomer Norton Town Council and town residents.

 

Since our creation we have met regularly and have worked on the following projects – some long term, others short term.
