Welcome to the website for Aller Parish Council. 

Aller is a village and parish in Somerset, England, situated 5 miles (8km) west of Somerton on the A372 road towards Bridgwater in the District of South Somerset. The village has a population of just over 400. The parish includes the hamlet of Beer (sometimes Bere or Bere Aller) and the deserted medieval village of Oath on the opposite bank of the River Parrett.

Aller was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Alre, meaning 'The alder tree' from the Old English alor.

The parish of Aller was part of the hundred of Somerton.

Dog fouling, general littering and fly tipping is a continuing big issue both in Somerset and nationally. 

A while ago the Parish Council was approached by Somerset Council to enquire whether we would be interested in reviewing the current bins we have in the village with a view to upgrading or re-siting them.
As a result of the review, and with expert input from Somerset Council, the Parish Council agreed that many of our smaller bins were no longer fit for purpose. We were also keen to improve the “look” of the village. As a result we have purchased three larger co-mingle bins designed to cater for both litter and dog waste.  These bins are more practical as they are larger, can hold more waste and only require emptying once a week. 

Please see the below What 3 Word locations and street locations:- 

High Street – w3w///single.ground.spouse
Junction of Orchard Place / Church Path - w3w///pest.gems.setting
Aller Rec / adjacent footpath - w3w///vocab.breakaway.setting

Please make good use of these and continue to keep our village tidy and litter free.


The Parish Council meet every other month, usually on the second Monday of the month (January, March, May, July, September, November) subject to change or additional meetings to address urgent issues at 7.30pm in the Village Hall. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
