Crewkerne now falls under two council tiers – County (Unitary) and Town Council. Each government level has different responsibilities and services to provide, but they work closely together to represent the interests of their communities. ​ 

​For an overview of the different services they provide, including Crewkerne Town Council, please see our Services Overview page
