Portishead Neighbourhood Plan

Portishead Town Council have been working with the local community and businesses to produce a Neighbourhood Plan for Portishead.

The Plan was submitted to North Somerset Council for examination on Monday 8 August. A final period of consultation (Regulation 16) was carried out from Wednesday 5 October to Friday 18 November. To view comments on the plan, please visit our consultation site.

The Plan is now undergoing an independent examination. Barbara Maksymiw has been appointed as examiner.

The examiner will decide whether the plan meets the necessary basic conditions to become a Neighbourhood Plan. You can find out about basic conditions and the process of preparing a neighbourhood plan on the government website.

The Plan went before Executive on 7 September 2022 where it was resolved that the submission meets the necessary criteria to go forward to examination.
