Para 2.3, para 8.38 (and fig 22) ad para 8.41 and (fig 23) I wish to register my objection to aspects of the Yeovil Urban Extension plans. I do not see how you can justify a figure of 4,475 homes in the Yeovil Urban Extension. Para 2.3 gives a population figure for Yeovil of 43,000 with population growth over the last ten years at roughly twice the national average; this gives a rough figure of 20,000 dwellings. The UK population rose approximately 0.64% in the last year, giving a rise in 15 y

The policy should state that specific house types will only be encouraged on small sites where practical and desirable.

·We think this is a very important policy in rural areas and would hope to see lifetime homes as being the most flexible housing type alongside all the other factors.

1) The requirements and intention of the policy are understood and broadly supported. The Council must be careful to balance the requirements of this policy with those of Policy HG2 regarding density standards. Density standards should not be set so high that a suitable mix of housing which responds to local need and demand cannot be provided.

Affordable housing should be designed and built sympathetically and in keeping with the local areas.

When one is planning more houses you must give a ration of say 20% - 25% small, possibly semi detached starter homes for young couples. This helps keep the heart and soul in a local community. Ilchester offers a lot for residents if they wish to use it. We have an excellent Post Office, a excellent Chemist, excellent Medical Practice and Dental Surgery. We have 3 pubs. 3 or 4 Restaurants, Cafes, Hotels, excellent Primary Schools, very good Town Hall, 2 garages, a church and of course our pl

My comment applies to other areas of South Somerset, not just Chard. I support the building of new homes as we have been informed repeatedly over the past few years that the county needs to provide a large number of new homes. However, my point is that these must not all be luxury new houses for sale at the highest price that can be obtained. A good proportion need to be normal houses that local peoople can afford to move into, either by buying them or through an affordable part buy/part rent

There appears to be no provision for building larger family houses (5 beds +) at the Northfields development in Somerton , thereby allowing larger families to trade up and stay in Somerton. Everything seems te be geared to building high density 2/3 bed boxes. How about catering for the upper end of the market for a change.
