South Somerset Local Plan Review 2016-2036 Preferred Options Consultation (Regulation 18) Settlement Strategy Scale of Growth for the District and the Main Settlements Text Block

The Charltons Parish Council's comments on SSDC Local Plan Review 2016 to 2036 Housing The Charltons fall into the new category of 'Villages'. This requires a growth in housing stock of 8% over the period of the Plan. At this time there is a residual requirement for 722 new homes. However, there is nothing to prevent all these being built in one Village. It is essential that there are safeguards that restrict growth in any Village to the 8% overall requirement, with a permitted variant of ±1%.

Ref 5.55, P42 The plan identifies that South Somerset expects around 9,360 new jobs to be created between 2016 and 2036. The plan also highlights the intent to build 15,538 new houses in the same timeframe.

* What evidence is there that Brexit will lead to growth in the food and drink sector (5.57)? This is not consistent with official concerns about its impact, and would be speculative at best.

We favour extensions of employment sites such as Stoke Road and Bower Hinton where transport links to the A303 are best. We note, with support, that planning permission has been granted for a considerable expansion of the capacity of the Sparrows site north of the B3165
