Pre-submission plan (reg 19) – Autumn 2023

The consultation period for the Local Plan Pre-submission draft closed at 5pm on Monday 22 January 2024.

It is now too late to submit any representations.

This stage is sometimes also referred to as the Regulation 19 or Publication version of the Local Plan. All of the representations made will be available to view shortly once those submitted by post and email have been uploaded onto the consultation portal. The representations will therefore be made public. To find out how we use your personal data, view our privacy statement.

We will be reviewing all of the representations made and then submitting them along with the Local Plan and supporting documents to the Government to be scrutinised by an independent inspector. The inspector will decide if the Local Plan complies with the necessary requirements for it to be adopted and used in decision making. 

The new North Somerset Local Plan identifies where development can and cannot take place in North Somerset, while guiding investment for new housing, jobs, transport and community facilities over the next 15 years.

The Pre-submission Plan was agreed by the Executive Committee on 18 October 2023.

We have also produced a short guide to the Local Plan.
