Two-stage consultation on plan to shape North Somerset’s future

A heads up on an upcoming consultation:

Residents and businesses will have the opportunity to engage in a two-stage consultation process this year on a plan that will shape the future growth of North Somerset.

The North Somerset Local Plan will guide housing, business investment, transport and infrastructure in the district until 2038.

North Somerset Council wants local communities, individuals and organisations to be involved in developing the plan and help influence the future of the area.

“There is also a need to better understand the Government’s exit strategy from the Covid-19 crisis and the longer term economic impacts and implications for North Somerset.

“It is also unclear what impacts the Covid-19 crisis will have on the housing market and the implications this will have for North Somerset’s housing needs. This requires further consideration and also recognition by Government that the basis of current forecasts may need to change.”

More details on how people can get involved in the consultations will be made available nearer the time.
