North Somerset Economic Plan 2017-2036

North Somerset Council and partners have been working on a refreshed Economic Plan for the area covering the period from 2017 to 2036.The plan aims to provide a framework to guide and influence activity, resources and investment, and ensure North Somerset is a vibrant and successful place to live, work and study.

This refresh has been informed by:

  • A review of the evidence base, ensuring there is a ‘golden thread’ running from the needs and opportunities of the area to the proposed activities;
  • A clear understanding of the strategic context, nationally, sub-regionally and locally;
  • An inclusive process of consultation with key businesses and stakeholders in all stages of development; and,
  • A steering group consisting of North Somerset Council, North Somerset Enterprise Agency, Weston College and the West of England LEP.
