As well as North Petherton, the area covered by the Town Council includes several distinct communities such as Moorland, North Newton and the newer developments of Wilstock and Stockmoor. The longer established communities have village halls, community centres or similar buildings which can be used by organisations to provide activities for people who live near by.
At present, Wilstock and Stockmoor do not have a building at the heart of its community but a hard-working group of people are turning the dream of the Wilstockhub into a reality, with work on the footings now well underway. The costs of the project are currently estimated at just under £2M.
The Town Council is not directly involved in the Wilstockhub project but is a committed project funder; there are various ways in which the Town Council can raise funds for the purpose of assisting the project and during the autumn The Town Council will be considering the financing options it can use in order to help move the hub project forwards.
As part of the Town Council’s process it is undertaking a consultation to obtain evidence of the level of support for the project..
