Have your say on our Local Area SEND Strategy

Over the past year we have worked with parent, carers and young people to develop our Local Area Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Strategy. We would now like to hear from a bigger group of people across North Somerset about what they think of our plans for working together in the coming years. We have also worked together to come up with a Co-Production charter which explains how we will make sure parents, carers and children and young people are involved in decisions about services and plans. This is an exciting and important part of this strategy, and there is a chance to comment on this charter too.

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) Featured

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.
