North Somerset Local Plan: Pre-commencement Document (March 2020)

On 7 January 2020 North Somerset Council formally withdrew from the JSP process and the Council will now prepare a new Local Plan for North Somerset covering strategic and non-strategic policies whilst continuing to work with neighbouring planning authorities and other bodies under the duty to cooperate. This presents a fresh start for the local plan and an opportunity to step back and reassess the strategic context and spatial strategy options for North Somerset. The Pre-commencement document is the notice of intent that a new Local Plan will be prepared for North Somerset for the period 2023 – 2038 and sets out its scope, methodology and programme.
