North Somerset Council is currently preparing a new Local Plan, which will guide development in the Borough for a 15-year period from 2023-2038.

Following earlier consultations on ‘Challenges’ (Summer 2020) and ‘Choices’ (Autumn 2022), the Council has now published its ‘Preferred Options’ and is seeking comments.

The consultation document includes a full draft version of the new Local Plan, including strategic and development management policies. The Council is now at a comparatively advanced stage of its Local Plan preparation, with this consultation forming the last opportunity for public comment before the Council issues its pre-submission (Regulation 19) draft in November 2022.

The headline issue of this consultation is the Council’s decision to propose sites for 18,046 homes, only 90% of the Government’s target of 20,805 homes.

The deadline for submission is 5.00pm on Friday 29th April 2022.
