People living and working in the West of England are being asked for their views about the future of the region. The feedback will help shape a Spatial Development Strategy for the West of England Combined Authority area, replacing the previous draft Joint Spatial Plan, which was thrown out by Inspectors after objections from CPRE Avon and Bristol and other organisations and individuals.

This sub-region includes the Local Authorities of Bristol, Bath & North East Somerset and South Gloucestershire Councils. Once the Spatial Development Strategy is agreed and published, it will form part of the ‘development plan’ alongside each of the Local Authorities own Local Plans, and should help to tackle important cross border issues.

‘It’s important that we involve residents, businesses and organisations at this early stage of the process, so we can make sure the plan reflects the priorities of the people who live and work here.’ The West of England Combined Authority
