  • Comment ID: 1920

Subject only to comments from our Clients in relation to the overall housing provision (Policy SS4) the settlement strategy is broadly supported, particularly the emphasis on Yeovil which continues to be recognised as a Strategically Significant Town as originally identified in the RSS. Yeovil is the largest settlement in terms of population and employment and also has the greatest propensity to generate additional growth, hence its identification in the RSS. Yeovil is the second largest town i

For the reasons set out in this submission I am of the view that the Local Plan fails the NPPF tests of soundness in that it is not flexible. 1. This issues fits across several parts of the Local Plan but demonstrates how SSDC have failed to bring a methodology into the Plan. (a) There appears is disconnect between the district wide requirement for housing, distribution of housing, jobs and employment land. The thrust seems to be about meeting corporate vision of large scale growth for Yeovil

Settlement Strategy 2.8 Policy SS1 – Settlement Strategy is strongly supported. "Yeovil is a Strategically Significant Town and the prime focus for development in South Somerset" 2.9 It is considered that by promoting Yeovil as the primary focus for development within South Somerset this will help to create a positive and competitive town which will adhere to the aspirations of the National Planning Policy Framework. 2.10 In addition, it is considered that the principle of the Sustaina

Abbey Manor Group supports the designation of Yeovil as a Strategically Significant Town. It is right that Yeovil is the prime focus for development in the District. Reflecting successive planning strategies for the District, the aim to increase the concentration of new development at Yeovil is consistent with the central tenets national planning policy, which seeks to accommodate development in the most sustainable manner through to minimising the distance people travel between home and work a

Policy SS1 Settlement Hierarchy identifies Langport, along with Huish Episcopi, as a local market town. Whilst its potential for growth is considered more limited than some of the other primary Market Towns, Langport/Huish Episcopi has been re-graded from a rural centre emphasising the plan for growth in the town. We support the designation of Langport/Huish Episcopi within the proposed hierarchy of settlements.

Policy places Chard in the appropriate point in the Settlement Heirarchy. 3.4 Policy SS1 sets out the Settlement Hierarchy in which Chard is identified as a major Market Town. Given that it is the second largest settlement in the district and capable of delivering growth, this policy is supported.

Fully support the designation of South Petherton as a Rural Centre by Policy SS1 having regard to: 1) its historic role in providing a range of services and facilities for the surrounding rural area; ii) its previous designation as Rural Centre by previously adopted Local Plans; and iii) having regard to the evidence within the South Somerset Settlement Role and Function Study (April 2009). On this basis it is considered that Policy SS1 meets the tests of Soundness. It is also considered that t
