We note that the Council has prepared its settlement strategy and hierarchy in conformity with that set out in the Secretary of State's Proposed Changes to draft RSS. Beyond the designation of Yeovil as a Strategically Significant Town, Market Towns and Rural Centres, the draft Local Plan identifies a further tier in the hierarchy (at paragraph 4.14) of Rural Settlements.

The range and type of housing to be provided in Rural Centres can be adequately planned having regard to the existing Housing Market Assessments and no further implied control is necessary. The Co
