Portishead Neighbourhood Plan

Portishead is currently producing its Neighbourhood Plan, which will shape the development of our town over the next ten years. The plan is produced by the community, not the Council, and the Neighbourhood Plan team want to hear what matters to you to help build the Plan.

You can have your say via the Commonplace online map, and a more in-depth survey will follow in May/June. 

Stay updated with all things Portishead Plan on the Portishead Neighbourhood Plan website and on the Portishead Neighbourhood Plan Facebook page.
