Main Modifications Policy YV2: North East Yeovil Sustainable Urban Extension (no name)

  • Comment ID: 103
I wish to OBJECT to 2 specific Main Modifications in Policy YV2 MM9 & MM10 . N Modification (MM9) on Landscape Mitigation measures for the NE Urban Extension to reduce the visual impact of the development. Is the Planning Inspector's recommendation to screen the NE option sound? The ESSENCE of the Main Modification seems to be that the Planning Inspector has directed that they must provide LANDSCAPE MITIGATION MEASURES to the NE site to protect things to the NW of that site, but he has NOT re

Excessive encroachment into the fragile strip of open countryside between Yeovil on the one hand and Over Compton, Trent and Up Mudford on the other, to which must be added the adverse visual impact on these villages of the 'pig ugly' - quote, last Housing Minster, N Boles - sprawl along Lyde Road - NPPF 126 & 129. The project also totally conflicts with the Mudford Neighbourhood Plan which has almost complete community support, thus contravening Government Policy on Localism. The area designa

The comments made at the hearing regarding views of the North East Yeovil SUE were related to short distance views from properties in the area of Trent and Over Compton (Dorset). The Planning Inspector sought changes to the Local Plan to detail mitigation measures in the form of landscaping. Both the North Eastern (Upper Mudford) and Southern (Keyford) landscapes are highly valued and sensitive to skyline development as detailed in the PLS addendum. Developments that could be obtrusive due to t

Response Type: OBJECT   I maintain my objection to the proposed development of 800 dwellings at the South Yeovil Urban Extension within the parish of East Coker, entirely on Grade 1 agricultural land.   Notwithstanding my fundamental objection above, I object to the proposed MM 9 because it takes no account of the need for structural landscaping to mitigate the visual impact of the proposed South Yeovil Urban Extension on the surrounding area.   Proposed development along the north east ed

OBJECT The following summarises my objection to the proposed Main Modification 9 to the Proposed Local Plan.   Policy YV2 - Main modification 9   Notwithstanding I maintain my objections to YV2 and say that all reference to both SUEs should rightly be deleted, I object to the inconsistency of approach now proposed for the two SUEs. The case for strategic mitigation of landscape impact is equally valid for the proposed South SUE as for the North East SUE. The proposed development at Keyford

I object to this modification to policy YV2 in the PSSSLP (2006-2028) on the following grounds. 1. The amendment from " 'B' use class employment land" to "land for economic development" gives a much wider and less well-controlled scope for inappropriate development without adequate consideration at this planning stage to all the key factors relevant to the process. 2. This is further compounded by the fact that any consideration of mitigation to limit the visual Impact has been conspicuously o

Looking at the proposed modifications to the Local Plan made after the recommendations of the Inspector, we object to POLICY YV2 (MM9) as there is not enough information about measures concerning the reduction of the visual intrusion of the proposed South Urban Extension (Keyford) when approaching Yeovil from Dorset along the A37. How can full consultation be given if this information is not included?

I object because the policy for the South Urban Extension of Keyford has not received the same consideration of the Inspector's concerns for landscape mitigation for the North East Urban Extension.  The area involved in the Keyford site is more sensitive and includes South Somerset rolling hills and is close to an area of natural beauty in Dorset.  This area needs protecting from the blight of urban sprawl, which when existing and undeveloped brown field sites are available for development, seem

To meet our obligations under the Duty to co-operate I can confirm that the County Council has considered the proposed modifications.  Dorset County Council welcomes the proposed Modification (MM9) to provide greater certainty regarding mitigation of the landscape impact stemming from the North East Yeovil Sustainable Urban Extension.  This will help to address the comments we made in January 2014 in respect of the proposed development of this area. Dorset County Council does not wish to comme
