Changes to Financial Assessment Processes for Adult Care

We are proposing some changes to a number of procedural arrangements for financial assessments, which will result in changes to client contributions for non-residential adult social care and support packages, including both managed services such as home care and non-managed services such as Direct Payments. Having discussed these changes with representatives of groups who may be impacted, we are now keen to know if there are any other possible impacts.

North Somerset Local Plan: Pre-commencement Document (March 2020)

On 7 January 2020 North Somerset Council formally withdrew from the JSP process and the Council will now prepare a new Local Plan for North Somerset covering strategic and non-strategic policies whilst continuing to work with neighbouring planning authorities and other bodies under the duty to cooperate. This presents a fresh start for the local plan and an opportunity to step back and reassess the strategic context and spatial strategy options for North Somerset. The Pre-commencement document is the notice of intent that a new Local Plan will be prepared for North Somerset for the period 2023 – 2038 and sets out its scope, methodology and programme.
