Portishead Neighbourhood Plan Submission Consultation


The Portishead Neighbourhood Plan has been submitted to North Somerset Council who will organise an independent examination. Before this happens there is a final chance for anyone to make comments on the Plan (see our

These responses will be forwarded to the examiner to be considered as part of the examination. 

The Examiner will decide whether or not the plan meets the necessary basic conditions to become a Neighbourhood Plan. You can find out about basic conditions and the process of preparing a neighbourhood plan on the government website
