North Somerset Council is the local authority of North Somerset. It is a unitary authority, possessing the powers of both a non-metropolitan county and district council combined. There are two parliamentary constituencies in the North Somerset boundary the North Somerset constituency and the Weston-super-Mare constituency.

The main settlements are Weston-super-Mare and three smaller towns of Clevedon, Nailsea and Portishead.

North Somerset Council provides a full range of local government services including highways, social services, children services, planning, parks and open spaces, waste collection and disposal, property maintenance and the council is also a local education authority. It has a population of around 206,100. North Somerset borders the local government areas of Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset, Mendip and Sedgemoor.

As a contracting authority, we spend around £160 million per annum on various works, goods and services to bring benefits to the area and its residents. The council operates out of the Town Hall, Weston-super-Mare and Castlewood, Clevedon.
