There is a demand for affordable rented or purchased accommodation in Bruton particularly for young people starting out on their careers, Not more housing for the sake of numbers. There are plenty of houses already on the market to buy. More building means more traffic, the proposed site access is unsustainable - through residential streets. Where would the would be purchasers work? There are some jobs in Bruton but most would commute by car to Frome, Bristol, Bath, Yeovil. SSDC has signed up to

Re: Potential development on outskirts of Bruton, Somerset: Brewham Road Dear Strategy team, I am very concerned about the 'preferred plan' to develop meadow and woodland to the north and south of the Brewham Road near Bruton for housing. My reasons are: 1. Brewham Road is wholly inadequate to allow safe pedestrian access to and from the village of Bruton. 2. Brewham Road and the roads of Brue Close/Avenue estate are wholly inadequate for the construction traffic that would be needed for bu

I wish to give my objections to the proposed building of houses off the Brewham Road in Bruton, the field which backs on to Brue Close and Brue Avenue. I have looked at the plans and note that the access from the proposed site will be either into the Brewham Road, which is a small country lane with no footpath for pedestrians, and used regularly by heavy lorries and farm vehicles as well as ordinary traffic, or into the present cul de sacs on Brue Avenue which traffic would then have to either

Policy BT1- Housing Provision at Brewham Road, Bruton As detailed above, the identification of this site as an allocation for residential development is supported. The Representation Statement provided in association with these comments sets out the case for allocation of the site. Whilst support is given to the allocation, it is contended that the LPA should apply a flexible approach in terms of the delivery of housing on this site and the figure of 60 dwellings should be applied flexibly.

I am concerned as a resident on Brue Avenue of the potential increase in traffic on the residential road which is already busy and often now the buses can struggle to get through. There is also a couple of narrow pinch points on the road and don't feel it would cope well with increased traffic flow. Also the infrastructure in the town is already struggling with the increased population especially the GP surgery. I worry that if these developments go ahead on top of the current one being built an

Housing - Important to have low cost supported housing. Also low emission/ 0 emissions with rainwater collection for loo's/washing etc Solar panels! Paths, cycletracks to bring people into town. Brewham Road - Trees planted around estate, electric points for e-cars accessible, make sure each house sufficient car parking for their cars. Infrastructure - We've had so many problems with our old sewage system - is it able to cope with more? Surgery and School - they will need larger capacity. Brew
