Choices consultation - Autumn 2020

The North Somerset Local Plan 2038: Choices for the Future consultation ran from 2 November 2020 to 14 December 2020.

It followed the Challenges for the Future consultation that took place in the summer.

Choices for the Future document

The Choices for the Future document sets out how we will plan for new housing, employment and community infrastructure. We want to make plans for the next 15 years that best reflect your priorities.

The Government has identified a need for a large amount of housing in North Somerset, so this isn't going to be easy. But we are up for the challenge and are ready to make positive changes.

We had a fantastic response to the consultation, with over 1600 people filling in our online questionnaire. The feedback we received has been set out in a Consultation Statement, which outlines how and who we consulted and summarises the responses.

The results of the Choices consultation are really helpful, and we will use this feedback as a starting point for developing a draft Local Plan, which will be consulted on this autumn. We would like to thank everyone who took the time to engage in the process.
