SCC welcome the inclusion of having 'educational services' as part of the criteria for Market towns.

It currently seems to be the more smaller local market towns that are delivering the growth as opposed to the larger market towns. How are you going to incentivise developers to build in the primary market towns over the smaller towns?

M&M support the proposed settlement strategy which identifies Chard as a Market Town which should provide locally significant development. Chard has a range of important roles including providing jobs and services for residents as well as those from the surrounding hinterland. Chard has capacity to accommodate additional housing development to meet local needs. It is important however that those sites identified should be capable of delivering e.g. Land at Mount Hindrance.
