Ilminster Business Survey & Community Noticeboard
The Ilminster Forum is working with South Somerset District Council to determine what can be done to help improve the viability of businesses in and around Ilminster. This survey, we hope, will identify what might be lacking and where assistance might be required. The Ilminster Forum and the businesses themselves will be able to use the data generated by the survey to apply for grant funding for projects that may have been highlighted in the survey. The only time we ask for personal information is in Questions 29 and 40, such personal information will not appear in any of our reports - ensuring data will be anonymous. This survey is aimed at all types of business and therefore some of the questions may not be relevant to your business. However, the more complete the forms are when they are returned to us, the easier it will be to persuade funders and other relevant organisations to support the actions needed to benefit Ilminster. We have tried to ensure that every business in Ilminster is aware of this survey, however if you know of a business that has not received this information please let us know. This survey is on Smart Survey and can be accessed using the following link: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/EW6Z4/

ILMINSTER COMMUNITY NOTICEBOARD is now up on the wall by the ATM at Tesco and ready for use.

This noticeboard is for non-commercial local community events, talks and exhibitions.  Residents are welcome to place their notices on the board, but they must adhere to the following rules:

  • Maximum size is A4, must be tidy with a clear title and legible text
  • In order to keep the board impartial and unbiased, no religious or political notices are permitted.
  • Please note that when demand for space is high, in order to give a range of organisations an opportunity to use this space, we may only keep posters displayed for one week.
  • The material should not be business-related, seek to increase business profits or recruit employees.
  • The material should not cause offence to public taste and decency.
  • The materials must include contact details and make clear who has published the information.
  • Notices displayed will be monitored and removed upon expiry date.

Cards only’ as all recycling sites go cash-free

Somerset’s 16 recycling sites will switch to operate cash-free and cheque-free from Friday 1 September with almost all payments taken only on credit, debit and charge cards.

The only exceptions will be the £2 cash entry fees for Crewkerne and Dulverton community recycling sites, and paying at the Reuse Shop within Taunton (Priorswood) Recycling Centre.

The move to all payments on plastic was agreed by councillors from all six Somerset authorities following many months of successful trials at both Chard and Taunton recycling sites since 2016.

Enhancing efficiency, security and the safety of staff, payments will be accepted on Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards, Visa Electron and Diner’s Club, including contactless cards.

Among the plastic-only payments taken at all recycling sites will be for the charged-for materials brought in by residents but classified as non-household: gas bottles, soil, hardcore and tyres.

And 10 sites take paid-for residents’ vehicle parts for recycling or disposal, while in a separate scheme, 10 sites accept businesses’ paid-for commercial waste, from timber to fridges.

Plastic-only payments will also be taken for “Revive” soil conditioner composted from Somerset’s garden waste and sold by every recycling site at £4 for a bag and £10 for three bags.

Payments for domestic asbestos and plasterboard will continue to be made online in advance at the Somerset Waste Partnership (SWP) website.

A SWP spokesman said: “Thanks to customers and staff, the Chard and Taunton recycling site trials have proved a great success, showing that it will work well throughout the network. 

 “If anyone thinks they may have a site payment problem, they should see staff before unloading.

 “The switch from cash to cards does not involve any new charges or any changes in prices.”

 Information on card payments can be found on flyers and signage at all recycling sites.

 Details of all recycling sites, from opening hours to materials taken and links to lists of charges, can be found at http://www.somersetwaste.gov.uk/sites/
