Welcome to the
Langport Town Council
Langport, situated on the banks of the River Parrett, in the heart of the Somerset Levels, is one of the smallest towns in England. The Town itself is surrounded by the parish of Huish Episcopi and rests in an area of countryside that includes the communities of Curry Rivel, Aller, High and Low Ham, Drayton, Pitney,Hambridge, Westport and Muchelney, amongst others. To the north east is the town of Somerton and to the south east that of Martock. Langport is situated in the District of South Somerset, whose local office is situated Langport Information Centre, Bow Street, Langport. The principal office of the District Council is located at Brympton Way, Yeovil.
Langport Town Councilis responsible directly to the residents of the Town, and we hope that this site will be your first point of call for information relating to the activities and services provided by the Council and the associated Town Trust.
On this site you will find Town Council Meeting Agendas together with minutes of all meetings held during recent years.
As the site develops it is hoped that the website will also become the local access point for information about services provided by South Somerset District Council and Somerset County Council. We also hope to encourage community development and support through involving local people more in what is happening in the town and surrounding area and by improving communication between the Council and the people of Langport. So, if you have any ideas about how we can do this please contact us.
