Public Meeting – Local Plan

Bath & North East Somerset Council is considering the next Local Plan which will determine where development will take place within our district over the next 20 years. The government has set a target of another 14500 new homes.

Our ward councillor Paul May is holding a public meeting to hear the views of residents in our ward so that he can feed these back to Bath & North East Somerset council. 

The public meeting will be:
Date: 4th March 2024
Time: 7:30 PM
Venue:  British Legion, Staunton Lane, Whitchurch, BS14 0QF
Open to all residents.

A New Consultation on the Local Plan

Bath and North East Somerset council has launched a consultation on our Local Plan and future development. 

Options for addressing future development needs, including the delivery of new homes and jobs across Bath and North East Somerset, as well as policies addressing a range of issues including the climate and ecological emergencies, are included for your consideration and comment. 

Residents and stakeholders are encouraged to share their thoughts on the proposed options by responding to an interactive version of the Local Plan online at https://www.bathnes.gov.uk/localplanoptions, as well as taking part in a series of in-person events. 

Representations can be made through the Bath and North East Somerset Council website or by post to Planning Policy, Bath and North East Somerset Council, Lewis House, Bath, BA1 1JG. Please note that Bath and North East Somerset council will not be accepting representations by email.

Videos on the council website will give step-by-step guidance on ‘How to Comment on the Local Plan’ and explain ‘What is a Local Plan’ as well as outlining how the various options will help to deliver the council’s priorities on housing, the climate emergency and sustainable transport. A second set of videos discuss specific locations identified in the Options report, as alternatives or options for potential development.

Printed copies of the plan are available at Bath Central Library; Keynsham Library; Midsomer Norton Library; Bath Housing, Welfare and Advice Services and community libraries.

Consultation dates

The consultation opens on 12th February and runs for eight weeks until 8 April.

You can respond online on the council website: https://www.bathnes.gov.uk/localplanoptions

Next steps 

Following the consultation, the issues raised in all comments and feedback will be carefully considered, and a Draft Local Plan will be produced, which will be subject to further consultation. It will then be submitted to the Secretary of State and examined by an independent planning inspector in 2025. If approved, it will be adopted by the council.
