6. Market Towns -Visions and Proposals Whilst we are aware that a specific study of the Yeovil Historic Environment has been undertaken, we are not aware of any comparative study for the other historic market towns and villages that have been identified for growth through this document. Whilst there may not be the requirement for such an extensive study for other settlements as they are not being put forward for Eco town status, there is still a need to understand the full impact of the growth p

It seems surprising that only Yeovil and Chard get a "transport" section or specific set of policies.

Sections 6 and 7 omit the historic environment's relevance to the market towns and rural centres when it is in fact highly significant.

Paragraph 6.3: 1) Chapter 6 provides a comprehensive description of each of the market towns and identifies relevant issues that will influence the scale and nature of growth. 2) It is recognised that the Core Strategy seeks only to make strategically significant allocations for growth as set out under Policy HG1. RPS also notes that there are specific policies within Chapter 6 relating only to growth in Chard. Paragraph 6.3 highlights there is a different scale of growth proposed for Chard, a

Somerset is a Farming area providing food the whole country. Building on it will not help the shortage of food. Food from this area is some of the best in the World. Building houses will not be helped as schools, doctors, hospitals and transport are unable to support the new precipitants.

Other Development Areas NHS Somerset believe that the housing growth identified within the core strategy for the other urban settlements (excluding Chard - see response) is in line with that contained in the previously submitted Infrastructure Development questionnaire and as such NHS Somerset request that reference to the Trusts response to this document is made. Large housing development policies need to make provision for the need of additional medical facilities, particularly Yeovil and Ch

Technically speaking Somerton can be classified as a Market Town, after all it has an old Market Cross that dates back many hundreds of years. However, Somerton is only a Market Town to the same extent that Wells is a City. The broad brushstroke classification must be kept in context with the size of Somerton verses the other Market Towns (and the historic roots of Somerton) and common sense must prevail regarding the quantity of housing allocated (I.e. relative to the other market towns).

The Core Strategy identifies the six Market Towns of Castle Cary/Ansford, Chard, Crewkerne, Ilminster, Somerton and Wincanton to be the focal point for locally significant development including the majority of growth outside Yeovil. There are a number of considerations that we would apply, in reviewing the implications of development in these areas for the SRN. These include the potential for growth to enhance the self containment of each community; the opportunities for sustainable travel choi

The B and C Classification process This determination of which towns fall into 'B' or 'C' classification was undertaken by Baker Associates on behalf of SSDC in the 'South Somerset Settlement Role and Function Study'. Their process for determining classification rests on the level of containment a centre can offer in terms of jobs, shops and services and the public transport links to larger centres. The report uses two main data sets, the 2001 Census for population data and 2006 employment data
