Challenges consultation - Summer 2020

We need your help to create a plan to shape how North Somerset grows and develops in the coming decades

This is our opportunity to plan for new homes of the right type, at an affordable price, in the right places, to meet the needs of the people who live here now and in future.

Click on the pages in the left hand menu to see the different stages of the plan.

You can take part in our online Challenges consultation from Wednesday 22 July to Wednesday 2 September 2020 or join the conversation on our social media.

North Somerset Council has commenced a new Local Plan which will set the framework for development across the district to 2038. The new Local Plan will shape investment and funding for the infrastructure which will support new homes, workplaces and community facilities for the next 15 years and beyond.

Once adopted, all applications for planning permission in North Somerset will be assessed against our new Local Plan.

This first stage of Local Plan consultation focuses on the challenges we believe we face in North Somerset and the issues the plan needs to address. You can read the full Challenges consultation document below.
