Local Plans were adopted by the former Taunton Deane Borough and West Somerset Councils. They include important policies and site allocations across both areas.
A new unitary council for Somerset will be formed on 1 April 2023. The existing county and district councils are working closely to scope the content and timescales for new Development Plan(s) to be prepared in the future as part the single unitary council. Please visit our Local Plan webpage for updates.
Our Local Plan doesn't cover the Exmoor National Park area, which is produced by the National Park Authority.
