North Somerset Green Party (NSGP) covers the whole of the Unitary Authority called North Somerset. North Somerset is a part of the cermonial county of Somerset but independent of it. We are bounded to the North by the local government area of Bristol, to the East by Bath and North-East Somerset (BANES) and to the South by Mendip and Sedgemoor. North Somerset comprises two parliamentary constituencies, Weston-super-Mare and North Somerset. In the map below, the county boundary is purple and the boundary between the two parliamentary constituencies is red.

Conservative Party 13
Liberal Democrats 11
Labour Party 6
Green Party 3
2015 General Election
NSGP stood a candidate in each of the two parliamentary constituencies in the 2015 General Election. David Derbyshire gained a record 6.5% of the vote in North Somerset, while Richard Lawson polled a creditable 4.9% in Weston-super-Mare, both results bettering any before them.
2017 General Election
The chaotic events surrounding the snap election in 2017 did no party any favours. Our candidate in North Somerset polled 1.9% and our candidate in Weston-super-Mare polled 1.6%.
