Draft Core Strategy (incorporating Preferred Options) Market Towns - Visions and Proposals Ilminster Local Issues Local Issues

Concern has been raised over the asserted requirement for new road infrastructure (second bullet point). We are not aware of any proposals highlighted in spatial maps, proposed sources of funding or even evidence for the requirement. It should be noted that additional infrastructure would need to be solely funded through developers or other third parties. We would appreciate clarification on these matters.

Ilminster Local Issues paragraph correctly identifies that the town is constrained by FZ3B of the river Isle and the Shudrick Stream to the west of the Town, but does not mention the risk of surface water flooding. Development in this area must be avoided.

Poor pedestrian/cycle routes between areas of the town. People have to drive between places that are geographically close but not linked. For example, Summerlands Park Drive and Greendale are next door to each other but has no pedestrian or cycle link.
