South Somerset Local Plan Review 2016-2036 Preferred Options Consultation (Regulation 18) Rural Centres Land south of Court Lane Text Block

  • Comment ID: 512
C3. Land South of Court Lane C3.1 We continue to oppose development of this site. To the extent that SSDC have issues with this position, we would be happy to discuss them in greater detail, and indeed would anticipate that such a discussion would be prompted by and welcomed SSDC prior to any decision to proceed with this site as a preferred option. C3.2 We note that a number applications for development of the site have been rejected, most recently in September 2014 (application 14/01055/OUT)

* B Conservation Area B1.1 An extension to the existing Conservation Area has been proposed and was in principle approved by SSDC in the spring of 2018. There was a minor technical point which held up the formal approval, which we understand was cleared by summer 2018, and yet the final sign off on the extension has not, at the time of responding, occurred. We would like to see this finalised as soon as is practicably possible. * Poor Self-Containment; high levels of Out-Commuting; low Employm

B10. Provision of Affordable Housing B10.1 We note policy HG2 regarding the provision of affordable housing. We approve the general strategy behind this. We note that the applicable percentage appears to have been reduced from 35% to 29%. We are concerned about this as a general point. However, we believe this is of specific interest in Milborne Port itself. B10.2 We are aware of the 2018 survey that was carried out and that, based on respondents from Milborne Port, a relatively low need for a

* PREFERRED OPTIONS C Headline Response * We cautiously approve site MIPO1 subject to a number of conditions * We continue to oppose site MIPO2,for a number of reasons including those set out in previous consultations, and as per the decision of SSDC itself of 23 September 2014 with regard to application number 14/01055/OUT * Given numbers already delivered and committed across South Somerset as a whole and Milborne Port in particular, we question whether there is rationale for nominating an al

We reserve the right to provide additional comments once we have received feedback from a number of SSDC cabinet officers following questions raised through Councillor William Wallace. We rese
