 Welcome to Congresbury Parish Council 


A new Local Plan for North Somerset is being prepared which will guide housing, jobs and business investment, transport, community facilities and supporting infrastructure in the area until 2038.  

The online consultation will last for six weeks closing on Wednesday 2nd September 2020. The link to the consultation is available here.

Bristol Avon Rivers Trust (BART) is an environmental charity to improve fresh water environments through community-led initiatives.  BART is looking for members of the public to participate in helping to monitor the quality of the river during August to develop a snapshot of water quality across the catchment. Further details are available here.


Currently the Parish Council does not have any free allotment plots for rent as they are all occupied and being used (July 2020). However, if you wish to be added to the waiting list please email or phone 838802.
