5.1 Policy SS1 of the Local Plan identifies that Yeovil is the primary focus for development in South Somerset. It goes on to identify that: The following are Market Towns where provision will be made for housing, employment, shopping and other services that increase their self containment and enhance their roles as service centres:- Primary Market Towns: Chard, Crewkerne, Ilminster and Wincanton 5.2 We agree with the identification of these market towns and the acknowledgement that Yeovil sh

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

Policy SS1 Settlement Hierarchy identifies Martock as a rural centre which has a local service role where provision for development will be made that meets local housing need, extends local services and supports economic activity appropriate to the scale of the settlement. We support the designation of Martock within the proposed hierarchy of settlements.

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.

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 2) its previous designation as Rural Centre by previously adopting Local Plans and 3) 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 the pla

Policy SSl states: "The following are Market Towns where provision will be made for housing, employment, shopping and other services that increase their self containment and enhance their roles as service centres:- ... Local Market Towns: Ansford/Castle Cary." Reiterating our previous point, our clients believe that development should be steered to towns like Castle Cary and we endorse the policy with the caveat that, from our analysis of the Council's evidence base, we fail to fully understan

Correspondence with South Somerset through the plan process has identified that the growth proposals for Yeovil and the Market Towns have the most potential to impact on the A303. Throughout the plan process we have been consistent in our reviews in order to ensure that the cumulative impacts of new development do not have a severe impact on the SRN. Our responses have been refined during the process as further evidence has been provided in support of the plan. In considering the proposals for

Policy SS1 replaces Policy ST3 of the South Somerset Local Plan and in respect of Yeovil carries forward the Development Area (land shown in yellow) on the Inset Map 15. The Development Area purports to represent an area of established built form for the town yet it will be noted that the area was first defined in the Draft Yeovil Area Local Plan of 1988 some 24 years ago and the current Local Plan reflects little or no change in its delineation failing to reflect the numerous changes to the bui
