The Council's Transformation Journey

The early years of austerity presented the Council with an extremely difficult set of operating conditions. To meet these challenges, we moved away from a model of cost reduction, and towards a new strategic mixed economy service delivery model.

 Shape Mendip LogoThrough this model, we have been able to ensure that our communities continue to receive high quality services. Our pioneering approach has ensured that despite significant government funding of 60%, we have continued to meet the needs of our communities.
