Phase 3 / Local Development Order

Phase 3 of the Food Enterprise Zone is an area covered by a Local Development Order. North Somerset was successful in bidding into DEFRA to be one of the 17 Food Enterprise Zones in the county in 2015.

The phase 3 are will be covered by a Local Development Order (LDO) which provides a simplified planning route to support and encourage new business development within the newly formed Food Enterprise Zone.

The LDO:

  • covers 7.5ha of land, located within Weston Business Quarter
  • is a mechanism to facilitate growth, offering an incentive to businesses and simplifying the planning process
  • will be active for 5 years from the date of adoption

North Somerset Council is currently consulting on the enactment of the LDO. The consultation runs from 1st of February until midnight on 1st March 2018. The consultation, included all associated plans and documents, can be found on the North Somerset Council website at
