Draft Core Strategy (incorporating Preferred Options)

Yeovil Urban Village

5.38 The Yeovil Urban Development Framework (YUDF) completed in 2005 identifies a triangle of land between Stars Lane, Park Street / South Street and Dodham Brook for regeneration/re-development. The YUDF proposes this area suitable for around 400 dwellings including a mix of leisure and retail uses at ground floor level. This is a major opportunity to bring investment back into an underused part of the town centre and is considered to be of a strategic scale justifying inclusion in the Core Strategy. The location of the Urban Village is shown on the proposals map.

Policy YV3 Yeovil Urban Village

The Yeovil Urban Village is identified as a strategic location for a mixed-use scheme including 400 dwellings, retail and leisure uses in the town centre.

The Yeovil Urban Village will be developed to Eco-town standards as listed with the Eco-town PPS the supplement to PPS1 and defined within the Core Strategy. Adoption of Eco-town standards is subject to viability assessment.
