North Somerset Core Strategy Consultation on consequential changes to remitted policies CS6, CS14, CS19, CS28, CS30, CS31, CS32, CS33

sw bristol may 09 033

The Core Strategy is the strategic planning document for North Somerset covering the period 2006-2026 and was adopted in 2012. 

As a result of a legal challenge in 2013 parts of the plan were sent back to the Planning Inspectorate to be re-examined.  The examination of the ‘remitted’ policies commenced with a reassessment of the housing requirement within North Somerset up to 2026 (Policy CS13).  On 18 September 2015 the Secretary of State confirmed a new housing requirement of 20,985 dwellings. 

The final stage of this process is the reassessment of the remaining remitted policies in the light of the new housing target to consider whether any consequential changes are required. 

The Council has identified its proposed changes to the other remitted policies and this consultation is the opportunity for others to comment. 

Comments are invited on both the overall approach and the proposed changes to the affected policies (CS6, CS14, CS19, CS28, CS30, CS31, CS32 and CS33).

All representations received will be forwarded to the new planning inspector who will undertake the examination, arrange hearings as appropriate and make recommendations. The Council will then be able to re-adopt these remitted policies.

The last day for comments is Friday 18 December. The easiest way to respond to the document is online.

Comments can also be emailed to or sent to Planning Policy Team,  North Somerset Council, Town Hall, Walliscote Grove Road, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 1UJ.
