focus group icon
Future ambitions and priorities for North Somerset Council are being developed and residents are invited to help shape them.

The new corporate plan will guide the direction of the work of the council, demonstrating how it will ensure that it continues to provide vital services and improve the area for all residents, while balancing budget challenges. 

The council wants residents' help in shaping those plans and is keen to listen.

"As an organisation we want to be better at listening to our residents and communities which is why we're asking you, our residents, to get involved in helping us shape our future plans."
