ABOUT

The Yeovil Refresh programme aims to create a town centre that will be a vibrant place to live, work, shop, learn and visit. Working with consultants and key partners, South Somerset District Council has been exploring how it can best invest in Yeovil’s future.

We have created this website to ensure that you can be kept up to date with information specifically about the programme as we move forward with the projects within it. You can view all the news articles released for Yeovil Refresh, all videos created, find out about the specific projects, details about the key stakeholders and also find out general information about the programme.
