Bath and North East Somerset is a non-metropolitan local government district which forms part of the ceremonial county of Somerset in the far south west of the United Kingdom.
The district stretches across approximately 220 square miles that encompasses the outskirts of Bristol, an area of the Mendip Hills and reaches as far as the southern Cotswold Hills and the Wiltshire border. The major settlement of the district is the city of Bath, and other settlements within its borders include Midsomer Norton and Westfield.
The size and population of Bath and North East Somerset
The Bath and North East Somerset district was created in 1996 after the abolition of the county of Avon and came to cover a total land area of approximately 136 square miles. This makes the district the 137th largest district in England.
Bath and North East Somerset actually provides a home for around 175,500 permanent residents, making it the 97th most populous district in England. That discrepancy between the district’s size and its population, therefore, is what explains its comparatively high population density of around 1,300 per square mile. In turn, this density explains why we will now discuss Bath and North East Somerset accident claim proceedings.
