Policy HG6: Policy HG6 does not include the policy wording from the findings of the HRA on Bracket's Coppice SAC and therefore the Core Strategy cannot be considered to be Habitats Regulations compliant. The policy only provides for land within designated sites and does not take account of ecological functioning supporting conservation objectives of Natura 2000 sites. Add the following to the Policy after 2nd bullet: 'Land outside a designated site which nonetheless ecologically supports the co

1. Gypsies and Travellers We note that there is not a numerical target in the plan for the number of Gypsy and Traveller sites/pitches. This is significant for Dorset as any lack of provision in South Somerset could have a knock on effect on demand in North and West Dorset in particular. We also note that the Draft Revised RSS, incorporating S o S's proposed changes, proposed 20 residential and 10 transit pitches in S Somerset. We would be grateful for the opportunity to comment on any figures w

Policy HG6 The location for new accommodation for Gypsies, Travellers and Travelling Show People should not occur in the identified flood risk areas, especially temporary accommodation i.e. Static caravans which are considered highly vulnerable. Therefore, we the wording in this policy must be stronger to avoid development in flood risk areas, reflecting the guidance in PPS25.

7.11 Gypsies, Travellers and Travelling Showpeople (Policy HG6) 7.11.1 Policy HG6 (Gypsies, Travellers and Travelling Showpeople) intends to meet the accommodation needs of Gypsies, Travellers and Travelling Showpeople at sustainable locations where essential services are available. 7.11.2 Policy HG6 relies on national planning policy guidance contained within Circular 01/2006, with subsequent versions of the Draft Core Strategy being informed by the emerging Somerset GTAA. The government has co

The guide for locating gypsy and traveller sites should be extended to include Conservation Areas. Sites should not be permitted within 1 mile of the boundary of a Conservation Site or AONB. There should be no visual impact on any part of the Conservation Area of ANOB/sites of scientific interest.

I am also rather concerned about the emphasis given to the travelling community. I would like to know what they contribute to society, and many (but of course not all) seem to indulge in anti-social behaviour, such as illegally occupying land with a well co-ordinated plan to construct an infrastructure before enforcement proceeding can be undertaken. Apart from anything else, this is hardly the behaviour of people whose lifestyle is to move around the country.

· It is hard to comprehend why there should be any specialised provision for gypsies and travellers, let alone any additional pitches. It is questionable whether a nomadic lifestyle is essential or appropriate for the early part of the 21st century, or if it is necessary to preserve history or tradition by this means. Indeed, I am at a loss to understand what are the cultural traditions of the ragtail bunch that comprise the average 'new age' traveller convoy. Many diverse ethnic groups have set

Whilst we support the objective of Policy HG6 concerning provision for gypsies, travellers and travelling showpeople, we consider that this should be expanded to include reference to the need for new sites to be appropriate in transport terms.
