The Plan uses information from the 2001 Census when data is readily available from the 2011 Census. Ref Yeovil — Vision and Proposals — Spatial Portrait "Nine Springs Country Park to the south of the town centre is one of Yeovil's key' assets" because it adjoins countryside of outstanding natural beauty in the 57. Parishes of East Coker and Barwick and beyond, which the Urban Extension will destroy. Ref: Yeovil Vision and Proposals Spatial Portrait

The draft Local plan is based on an employment led approach to growth. Jobs and homes are aligned to provide more opportunities for local employment and sufficient homes to improve levels of self containment. The Settlement Strategy focuses future growth on Yeovil which is the one "Strategically Significant" town in South Somerset. Altogether Yeovil is expected to accommodate just under half of the 16,000 new dwellings proposed in the District. Around 1560 new dwellings are proposed in a major

The overall vision for the District to 2028 is supported; it correctly identifies the role of Yeovil as the largest settlement, with the expectation that by 2028 it will have expanded and it will be a prime economic driver within the district and beyond. Some of the apparent policy constraints particularly on employment growth need to be reviewed and certain djustments made to the role of Yeovil both for the delivery of housing and employment. The Yeovil Sustainable urban extension is supported

5.2 It should not be forgotten that railway track links the two railway stations. The original passenger and freight shuttle could be easily reinstated. 5.3 and 5.4 Incorporating traditional waterway industries and returning navigation to the river Yeo will resurrect diversification of employment skills with alternative commerce. Insufficient study and generalised apathy toward benefits of existing facilities cannot be just reason to figuratively barricade potential solutions that satisfy stat

Para 5.8 recognises the importance of the environs yet the proposed Yeovil Urban Extension will significantly degrade all aspects talked about therein given in particular that once set in train it will itself expand (the latter is noted elsewhere within the plan).

I Object to paragraph 5.7 and associated base evidence on the grounds that it is not based on up-to-date information. The first and second sentences use information from the 2001 Census, when the 2011 Census data is now available.

I object to the proposed development to the south of Yeovil for the following reasons 1. Road Infrastructure The road network in and around Yeovil already struggles to supported by the exiting volume of traffic the road network. In particular where the A37 meets Henford Hill there is already unacceptable levels of congestion. The proposed development will further increase traffic on the A37, and as a result will lead to increased traffic through East Coker, Barwick & Stoford by those looking t

I object to the proposerd development to the south of Yeovil for the following linked reasons 1. It is too large to blend in with then existing environment, unlike small additions made to villages and is thus unlikely to enhance the social life of the area. 2. Increased traffic will occur through Barwick & Stoford which at present has problems with the volumes due to the roads being used as a 'rat run' to the lower end of Yeovil. Lastly what do the initials DPD mean? There is no definition of
