West of England Joint Spatial Plan: Towards the Emerging Spatial Strategy
The Joint Spatial Plan: Towards the Emerging Spatial Strategy
The West of England Region is a growing area, both economically and demographically. It is projected the West of England population will grow by 185,500 (16.4%) and there will be an increase of 82,500 jobs and employment over the next 20 years.
It is therefore essential to continue to invest in the quantity and quality of our housing stock and the infrastructure needed to support sustainable communities to house, train and employ this growing population and provide a good quality of life.
The four West of England councils: Bath and North East Somerset Council, Bristol City Council, North Somerset Council and South Gloucestershire Council are in agreement that it is important to understand the needs of the wider housing market area in a way which provides clarity for detailed plans and avoids duplication of costs and effort. As a result, a Joint Spatial Plan (JSP) is being developed by the four local authorities to provide a strategic, overarching vision and framework to help deliver the number of new homes, land for employment purposes and the supporting infrastructure that we anticipate will be needed over the next 20 years across the West of England.
The first step in this process was the Issues and Options consultation which took place in late 2015. You can find out more about what happened in that consultation here.
The second consultation ran from 7 November 2016 to 19 December 2016.
The consultation has now closed.
This consultation provided a chance to tell us how you think homes, employment and infrastructure should be provided across the West of the England over the next 20 years. We have received numerous responses, and these responses will be read and analysed by the project team.
If you would like to refer to the technical documents and report which supported the consultation then these can still be accessed here.
What happens next?
All feedback will be evaluated and considered once the consultation has closed. The development of the Spatial Strategy will continue throughout 2017 and the submission of the document to Secretary of State is anticipated to be in 2018; for more information on progress please go to www.jointplanningwofe.org.uk.
