Watchet Town Council (WTC) in Somerset is a proactive, forward-thinking local council which benefits from a wealth of skills from its hard-working 12 councillors and staff of five. The town is located in West Somerset, which has been identified as the UK’s most deprived area in terms of employment, education and housing as measured by the social mobility index. By working with local businesses, Community Interest Companies (CICs) and social enterprises, such as the new East Quay Development where many jobs will be created, WTC provides a voice to link and address these local issues.
