Our Community Safety Partnership

South Somerset District Council are a lead agency in this partnership and work closely with the following agencies to ensure that South Somerset continues to be one of the safest places in the country in which to live, work and socialise.

Registered Social Landlords:

The Partnership are working towards a five year plan which sets out the priorities to be addressed.  http://www.avonandsomerset-pcc.gov.uk/Your-PCC/Meet-Your-PCC.aspx


Local priorities are:
  • Violent crime
  • Vehicle crime
  • Business crime
  • Road Safety
  • Anti-social behaviour

Partner agencies cannot be fully effective by working alone, so we encourage the support of local communities and voluntary organisations, by setting up Local Action Groups (LAGs) and Partner and Communities Together (PACT) meetings where they can help to identify problems and formulate appropriate solutions. Their help is vital in sustaining local initiatives that address local issues and supporting our crime prevention activities.

Local Action Groups are maintained through the partnership structure in South Somerset.
