North Somerset offers a great place to live and work and is ideally located at the gateway to the South West of England. Bordering Bristol to the east, and forming part of the Bristol Bath 'The Best of City Region' the area benefits from excellent transport links to the rest of the country. A highly skilled workforce and plenty of development opportunities (including at Junction 21 Enterprise Area), make North Somerset an ideal place to invest in. The Economic Development Service provides advice and support to new and existing businesses, as well as promoting the latest business news and business case studies from across the area.
