Welcome to eConsult where you can view all our current, upcoming and completed consultations. 

This page shows the list of current North Somerset Council 'General consultations' for you to respond or look at. To look at past consultations, choose the ‘Closed’ tab. To see future consultations, choose the ‘Future’ tab.

As well as General consultations you can see our Planning Policy consultations.  These are consultations which form part of our Local Development Framework, formerly known as the Local Plan, covering large-scale planning issues. The procedure for these is governed by law, including the requirement to Log in or Register on our Planning Policies consultations site before you can take part in most of them.

For most consultations (General Consultations), you do not need to register on this site, nor to provide any personal information: you can just go on and let us know what you think. However:

1) if you want a weekly email alerting you to any new council consultations, you need to be registered, as we need your email address, and a user name. To do this, click Register and choose your email alert options. To unsubscribe or to amend your email preferences, or any aspect of your registration, go to My profile.  

2) very occasionally we run a non-Planning Policy consultation which requires you to register some personal information. In such cases, you will automatically be prompted to register before you can take part.

Local Plan 2036: Issues and Options Stage Featured

We are preparing a new Local Plan which will provide detailed policies and additional housing, employment and other land allocations up to 2036. It will review and roll-forward policies and allocations in existing development plan documents and plan for the amount of housing, jobs and infrastructure set out in the Joint Spatial Plan (JSP). This is an early stage in the plan making process, and the purpose of the issues and options document is to identify the challenges that need to be addressed. We would like to receive your feedback on the options we have identified.
