I was very interested by the Consultation session held at Milborne Port recently. I am not against development in Milborne Port, if such development is done on as small a scale and in as environmentally friendly way as possible. In line with current concerns over Climate Change and the Council's own policies on sustainability and ecological sensitivity, I wish with all my heart that there was much more commitment to these crucial aspects than is evident in recent and current plans. In general

I agree with Comment ID 6 from David King and his analysis of housing numbers required for the 5 year housing supply.The problem with 5 year housing supply is the speed which they are built, which is in the hands of the developers but they benefit from applying for extra housing in the wrong places to meet the 5 year housing supply. I believe from your figures the housing supply for 2023-2028 will be 7,974 why can't these be brought forward?. The number of houses for Yeovil should not be reduce

3.1 Policy SS2: Delivering New Housing Growth, identifies a minimum housing requirement of 1,995 dwellings for Chard up to 2036. This is an "at least" figure, which is supported as it allows for additional growth to come forward which should be reflective of the sustainability of any given settlement and reflective of local housing needs and requirements as set out in national planning guidance.

Policy SS2: Delivering New Housing Growth, identifies a minimum housing requirement of 245 dwellings for Milborne Port up to 2036. This "at least" figure, which equates to roughly 12 dwellings per annum average is supported. Milborne Port is well placed to deliver this level of growth having delivered on average 19 dwellings per annum between 2006 and 2018. This strong delivery is recognised in the 2018 Authority Monitoring Report: "In some settlements the market is buoyant and houses have been

3.1 Policy SS2: Delivering New Housing Growth, identifies a minimum housing requirement of 1,194 dwellings for Crewkerne up to 2036. This "at least" figure, which equates to roughly 60 dwellings per annum average is supported as it allows for additional growth to come forward. Any additional growth should be reflective of the sustainability of the settlement and reflective of local housing needs and requirements as set out in national planning guidance. 3.2 As at March 2018 monitoring data iden

Policy SS2 – Delivering New Housing Growth, identifies a minimum housing requirement of 330 new homes for Martock and Bower Hinton over the plan period of 2016 to 2036. This equates roughly to 16.5 dwellings per annum. The approach taken in Policy SS2 with regards to a minimum housing requirement rather than a cap to residential development is supported. Table 3.1. below demonstrates that Martock will accommodate the second highest level of residential growth in the settlement tier of Rural Ce

The 2006-2028 Local Plan Table 2, Settlement Hierarchy and Scale of Housing Growth still has Ilchester down for 140 houses. It is assumed that this number satisfies planning policies, in particular, Policy SD1 Sustainable Development, Policy SS1 Settlement Strategy, Policy SS6 Infrastructure Delivery and Policy TA5 Transport Impact.
