We are working with the local community, town and parish councils and businesses on a strategic infrastructure led masterplan for Severnside.

About the masterplan

The aim of the masterplan is to develop a locally informed vision to help shape the future of Severnside in the medium and long term, up to 2050. It will build on all of the different strengths that the area has.

The masterplan will take into account the:

  • character of existing coastal villages and rural communities
  • strong economic sector unique to Severnside
  • unique natural environment
  • climate and nature emergency
  • new economic and development opportunities
  • need for sustainable travel solutions

Project progress

Building the evidence base – September 2021 to December 2021

We have collated and analysed relevant information about the area. We have used this information to assess the current and potential future situation and look at what opportunities could be created.

Defining the vision – January 2022 to March 2022

We have been meeting with key stakeholders, including local members, employers, town and parish councils and community groups to introduce them to the project and to listen to their views.

Developing the draft masterplan – April 2022 to May 2022

Next steps

Public engagement – 13 June 2022 to 24 July 2022

A public engagement is now open. All engagement materials will be available to view on our consultation webpage along with a survey from this date.

We are holding two drop-in events where you can come and learn more about the draft masterplan for Severnside, ask questions and provide feedback. These will be held on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 15 June 2022, 2pm to 7pm, Easter Compton Village Hall, Main Road, Easter Compton, BS35 5SJ
  • Tuesday 5 July 2022, 2pm to 6.30pm, Severn Beach Village Hall, Ableton Lane, Severn Beach, BS35 4PP

Comments received during the engagement period will inform a final draft of the masterplan, which will be published in Autumn 2022.
