About our Core Strategy

The Core Strategy is the main planning document which guides development choices and decisions in North Somerset. The strategy was adopted on 10 April 2012. 

Following a high court challenge nine policies were remitted for re-examination.

In September 2015, policy CS13: scale of new housing was re-adopted.

The remaining remitted policies were then re-examined. On 10 January 2017, the council adopted the remaining remitted policies: CS6, CS14, CS19, CS28, CS30, CS31, CS32 and CS33.
