Council to spend another £75 million on commercial buildings

Nov 12, 2019

South Somerset District Council is to invest a further £75 million buying commercial properties.

Since 2017, the council has spent £64 million buying 13 properties.

The strategy is aimed at generating income for front line services in the face of government funding cuts.

But the Council now say the reductions in central government funding are likely to go deeper than originally feared.

And, that additional investment in commercial properties is needed to ensure that essential services are protected.
