Hutton Parish Council

Welcome to Hutton Parish Council

This site is designed primarily for the use of residents of the parish, but also to provide information to a wider audience of those who wish to know about the parish and what it has to offer. The parish is centred on the village of Hutton itself, situated in the South West of England in the ancient county of Somerset and includes the outlying areas of Woodside and Elborough villages.  It is four miles inland from the town of Weston-super-Mare on the Bristol Channel coast.  It lies beneath the north slope of the Mendip Hills, on the border of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which bears their name. Bristol, Bath, Bridgwater, Taunton and Wells are all within a 30 mile radius, and the nearby M5 provides access to the South West peninsula.

The parish of Hutton now (June 2019) consists of some 1,205 households, with 2,273 electors (2019 register of electors) and a total population (at the 2011 census) of 2,582.  Its known history goes back to the time of the Saxon king Edward the Confessor (1042-1066) and when surveyed in 1086 for William the Conqueror’s Domesday Book there would have been about 100 inhabitants, 60 in Hutton itself and 40 in Elborough.

Hutton Hill Update - From North Somerset Council


Hutton Hill in Hutton remains closed due to a collapsed private wall.


This is a complex situation and North Somerset Council are supporting the property owners with advice to enable them to resolve the matter as soon as possible.


The council’s priority is to keep road users safe and to avoid any further damage to nearby properties. The road closure is causing inconvenience but there is no safe alternative.


The works to repair the failed wall will cost hundreds of thousands of pounds and the responsibility to replace the retaining wall and undertake repairs lies with the relevant property owners. Insurance claims can take time to be resolved despite companies being informed of the council’s intention to charge for maintaining the road closure.


The road is likely to remain closed for many months to come as work required to repair the retaining wall is complex and expensive.

The current diversion route is the only viable alternative route through the village and North Somerset Council would encourage everyone using it to respect each other with careful and considerate driving.


The council will keep the community updated as the situation progresses and thanks them for their patience.
