Message from North Somerset Council Consultations


Dear Sir or Madam

Site Allocations Plan (Consultation Draft) March 2016


Consultation Period Thursday March 10th 2016 –Thursday April 28th 2016

What is the purpose of the Site Allocations Plan?


The Site Allocations Plan brings forward detailed site allocations that complement the strategic context set out in the Core Strategy.


The principal task of the Site Allocations Plan is to identify the new residential allocations necessary to deliver the Core Strategy shortfall, taking into account the need to provide deliverable sites to ensure the Council can maintain a five year housing land supply. In addition the plan reviews existing and the identification of new allocations covering, for example, employment uses, as well as designations to safeguard or protect particular areas such as local green space or strategic gaps.


What stage is the document at?


The Site Allocation Plan is at the Consultation Draft stage .  All responses received from this consultation will be taken into account when finalizing the plan and submitting it to the Secretary of State for examination. An earlier consultation draft   was consulted on in February 2013  but work on this was delayed due to the uncertainty over the  Core Strategy housing target. Because of the increase in the Core Strategy housing target it is felt necessary to consult further
