We want our town to be widely recognised for its culture and arts, education, excellence in sports and high levels of well-being, drawing on our outstanding local natural environment and fabulous green spaces to make it a highly healthy and enjoyable place to live and work
Quality of our Environment: give our town a ‘gurt’ green makeover, joining up our green spaces, waterways, parks and play spaces, planting more street trees and woodlands and managing our water more imaginatively with wetlands and rain gardens to improve it for recreation, tourism and wildlife.
Quality of our Movement: we will integrate our transport network so that it serves Taunton with much improved bus and appropriate vehicle links to our main destinations and make much better prioritised provision for walkers and cyclists encouraging healthier and more sustainable journey choices as attractive alternatives to travelling by car.
Quality of our places and neighbourhoods: Taunton will deliver an outstanding built environment focused on places and spaces with high quality neighbourhoods, green streets and public spaces and with homes and buildings that are distinctly local in appearance. Our houses, offices, employment areas, public services and road infrastructure will embrace innovation, will be energy efficient and will exploit the latest sustainable technologies.
