NORTH Somerset residents will be able to have their say on how their neighbourhood develops over the next two decades.

A number of drop-in sessions are being held across the district this month for people to find out more about plans to change the area.

North Somerset Council is inviting comments on its draft Core Strategy, which outlines the main sites for growth and development up until 2026.

As part of a public consultation period, which runs until February 19, the authority has organised a series of drop-in sessions where residents can meet planning officers and find out more about how the Core Strategy might affect them.

The sessions will be held at Churchill Memorial Hall in Ladymead Lane, from 4-8pm on Tuesday, Locking Village Hall in Grenville Avenue, from 4.30-8pm on Wednesday, Hutton Village Hall, in Main Road, from 3-8pm on January 15 and The Campus in Highlands Lane, Locking Castle, Weston, from 3-8pm on January 18.

The draft Core Strategy document and summary leaflet will be available at the sessions.

In October 2007 residents were asked what they thought the main issues were in the area they live and how they should be addressed.

They will now have a second opportunity to give their thoughts on how they think plans should go forward.
