North Somerset is a unitary authority area in the south west of England, which covers part of the area known as the ceremonial county of Somerset, but is administered separately to that non-metropolitan county. The area borders the local government areas of Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, Mendip and Sedgemoor, and includes the parliamentary constituencies of North Somerset and Weston Super Mare, the town in which the administrative centre of the district is also found.

The History And Naming Of North Somerset

The district as it is today came into being on the 1st April 1974 as one of the hundreds of changes to local government which followed the passage of the Local Government Act in 1972, but for the first 24 years of its existence it was known as the Woodspring District. After this time however, the government proposed that the new unitary area be known as “North West Somerset” from 1 April 1996. This was rejected by the council in favour of the name of North Somerset and so this was the moniker that was widely used. Whether that was the area’s official name remained up in the air until 2005 however, when the council finally passed an official resolution to eliminate all doubt.
