Broadway Parish Council was formed in 1894.

The Council consists of seven Councillors and a Parish Clerk. The Councillors undertake their roles on an unpaid voluntary basis, working for the benefit of the parish and its inhabitants.

The Council has several assets for which it is responsible-Varden’s Pond, Standerwick Orchard, The War Memorial, the Play Area, as well as noticeboards and seats.

The Council considers village planning applications submitted to Somerset Council, and reacts and responds to requests from parishioners, various organisations and local government. The Council also supports local charities and youth organisations.

Meetings of the Council are held monthly on the first Tuesday in the month.

These Meetings are held in Broadway Village Hall, starting at 7.30pm.

Everyone in the village is welcome to attend.

National Highways’ proposed dualling of the A358

National Highways is now considering the responses to the consultation it undertook last autumn. These include a detailed submission by the Community of Parishes, a group of local councils representing communities along or near the proposed route and of which Broadway PC is a member, and by Broadway PC itself. Both documents can be found on the Highways section of this website.

The Community of Parishes has also submitted 2 further documents. One is an appraisal of the consultation process, pointing out the many ways in which it failed adequately to engage with local communities. This was sent to National Highways last month. The other is a critique of the failure by National Highways to accurately reflect in its consultation the true nature of the A358 dualling. In particular, the paper makes clear that the new road would be built to a standard just short of that for a motorway, a proposal which makes it unnecessarily hard to meet local communities’ need for good links to, from and over the new road. This document was sent last month to the Planning Inspectorate for consideration, ahead of its receipt of National Highways’ application for consent to build the new road.

Both documents are available on the Highways section of this website.

If villagers have any comments to make on any of these documents, the Parish Council would be delighted to receive them. This can be done either by emailing me, the Council Clerk, on BroadwayPC@outlook.com or by attending a meeting of the Council, which usually convenes in the Village Hall at 7.30 pm on the first Tuesday of each month.
