There are currently three tiers of local government which serve residents in the county of Somerset: county, district and town or parish councils. In Frome, the local authorities are Somerset County Council, Mendip District Council and Frome Town Council.
The Government has recently decided that there will be a new unitary council arrangement in Somerset, resulting in a two-tier system. More information on this change can be found on our Local Government Reorganisation page.
Frome is in the Parliamentary Constituency of Somerton and Frome, currently represented by David Warburton MP of the Conservative Party.
