About 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. The council have now adopted the remaining remitted policies CS6, CS14, CS19, CS28, CS30, CS31, CS32 and CS33 on 10 January 2017.
