Welcome to Congresbury Parish Council
Boost for play equipment on King George V playing field
Congresbury Parish Council has been awarded additional funds from North Somerset Council to purchase new play equipment on King George V playing field. Over the next month, the Parish Council will be looking for volunteers from the community to help decide what equipment we need. The Parish Council will also be assessing equipment needs for the Millennium Green.
Further speculative planning application
Congresbury Parish Council at a recent planning meeting has reviewed a new application for 47 houses and medical centre (application 22/P/1142/FUL) and the decision was to recommend refusal to North Somerset Council. Our response is being drafted.
North Somerset Council has not yet reached a decision for planning application 22/P/0459/OUT for 90 houses on land off Mulberry Road. The Parish Council made this decision at its full council meeting on 7 April 2022. North Somerset Council will now assess all the objections. See our response here.

Change again in the Parish Office
Our new clerk Carolyn decided to step down in early July. The Parish Council is now reviewing options for a new clerk. During this time, the Parish Office will be at reduced capacity so it may take us longer to respond to queries.
