Planning Policy

The Planning Policy team is responsible for the preparation and implementation of the Local Development Framework, and has a wider role in delivering a sustainable future for the district of Sedgemoor.

Local Plan

The Local Plan sets out the Council's policies for managing development and the use of land across the district.

Community and Neighbourhood Planning

This page gives details about the Neighbourhood Planning process. It also provides information about Village Design Statements and Parish Plans.

Self-Build and Custom Build

The Government wants to enable more people to build or commission their own home and make this a more mainstream housing option. Sedgemoor District Council therefore wants to find out how much interest there is in this approach to housing development across the area.

Bridgwater Tidal Barrier

The Bridgwater Tidal Barrier and associated downstream defences will protect over 10,000 homes and 600 businesses in the local area from tidal flooding.
