Somerset Council is the Highway Authority for all roads in the Administrative County of Somerset, with the exception of Trunk roads managed by National Highways.

It lies within the historic county of Somerset, but does not manage roads within other parts of the historic county such as those administered by Bristol Council, North Somerset Council or Bath & NE Somerset Council.

It is a single-tier authority (at the district level), and in April 2023 replaced the abolished Somerset County Council (and its districts) with the same boundaries as the former County Council.

Classified Unnumbered (Class III) and Unclassified Roads

Main Article: Somerset Council (Class III roads)

For their Class III road network, it is not yet clear how the newly formed Somerset Council will choose to number their Class III network, though it is likely to be a continuation of the former Somerset County Council system, who used "C" prefixes. They also chose to number some of their unclassified roads, with a prefix of "D".
