    Changes in making payments in Minehead

    Friday 12 August 2016

    West Somerset Council’s Minehead office will no longer be available for customers to make payments from September 23.

    Following a public consultation earlier this summer, the council will be ceasing to take payments at its Minehead Office from September 23 2016.  This decision has been taken to help modernise and reduce the cost of service delivery. 

    Wherever possible, the council would encourage payment by direct debit as this has the lowest cost to the authority, but the Council is also offering residents a range of alternatives as outlined below. The Summerland Road office is due to move from its current premises in December.

    Payment Type Method
