South Somerset District Council are leading the regeneration of Yeovil town centre. The council adopted the Yeovil Refresh in 2018 which is a holistic strategy to improve and transform the town. The Yeovil Refresh Projects are a corporate priority for SSDC and have high level support.

The council has allocated a £20 million gross and £2.5 million net budget to tackle these issues. SSDC have recently submitted a bid to the Future High Streets Fund for £14.2 million. A key element of that bid is the ongoing monitoring and evaluation of the impact of any actions. The fund conditions require that the council install footfall counters in the town centre.

The council is seeking to install up to five footfall counters in the core streets. These run from Westminster Street in the western edge of the town to the junction of Middle Street with South Western Terrace at the eastern end of the core commercial area.

As an element of this installation the council will require access to the collected data, analytical tools, reporting capability, benchmarking data, general support, planned and unplanned maintenance through the life of the contract.
