About the new Local Plan for 2036

Work has now commenced on the new Local Plan which will provide detailed policies and additional housing, employment and other land allocations up to 2036. It will review and roll-forward policies and allocations in existing development plan documents and plan for the housing, jobs and infrastructure set out in the Joint Spatial Plan (JSP). The JSP was submitted for examination on 13 April 2018. For North Somerset it contains proposals for four new communities at Banwell, Churchill, Nailsea and Backwell. Details of the Joint Spatial Plan can be found at www.jointplanningwofe.org.uk.

Evidence base

We are developing the evidence base to support the preparation of the Local Plan. Documents will be published as they become available.
