North Somerset is located at the gateway to the South West of England and is part of the Bristol and Bath 'City Region'. Key towns in the area include Weston-super-Mare, Clevedon, Portishead and Nailsea. North Somerset benefits from global transport links, a plentiful and highly skilled workforce, abundant development opportunities (including Junction 21 Enterprise Area) and beautiful coast and countryside. This unique combination makes the area an ideal place to invest, gives existing businesses room to grow and the opportunity to enjoy an excellent work-life balance.
