by Peter Seib on 12 May, 2015

The new primary school at Lufton, which was due to open in September next year, is being held up because Persimmon won’t build the new main road which runs through the site.

Don’t Gamble with Your Vote

by Peter Seib on 28 April, 2015

In reality, Yeovil will probably not choose the next Prime Minister. However, your vote will decide how well Yeovil is represented, whether your interests are considered at the very heart of the government and critically, whether the next government is stable and held within the centre-ground.

by Peter Seib on 15 March, 2015

The old area was in poor repair, but a worse problem was that it had very little “play value” for local children and it was starting to attract anti-social behaviour. Over the last few […]

by Peter Seib on 15 March, 2015

Councillor John Richardson has warmly welcomed Emma Dunn as the candidate to replace him on SSDC. “It was a great honour to have been your elected representative and not one I am giving up lightly. I have decided to retire earlier than I expected. I’m really glad Emma has been selected to stand.” “She is a good listener, a tough campaigner and, […]
