Key Changes to Core Strategy Consultation Draft


The Key Changes Consultation sets out three main changes to the Core Strategy. These changes relate to the overall housing numbers, changes to the settlement strategy and a revised approach to growth at Weston-super-Mare. 

The Core Strategy Consultation Draft (November 2009) was subject to public consultation between November 2009 and February 2010.  Before proceeding to the next formal stage (Publication or pre-submission stage) we are seeking your views on three main changes. These are:- 

  • A new North Somerset-wide housing requirement of 13,400 dwellings 2006-2026.
  • Revisions to the settlement strategy to include infilling-only villages.
  • A revised approach to strategic growth at Weston-super-Mare

These have resulted from responses received to the Core Strategy Consultation Draft (2009) and the revocation by the Government of the Regional Spatial Strategy in May 2010.

The easiest way to respond to the consultation is by reading our key changes document and responding to the online questions. If you have difficulty accessing the document or would like it in another format such as large print, Braille or audio formats please contact Celia Dring on 01934 426244.
