Infrastructure The Local Plan places great emphasis on the infrastructure and community facilities that must accompany housing growth. However the only tools identified for raising the funds to do this are s106 agreements and CIL. As the new development within CEDA has already been deemed free of CIL, how are these huge infrastructure needs expected to be met? There is deep concern that in order for new housing to be a viable financial proposition, developers will be able to argue to limit thei

Police * At present there isn't a working PCSO in the Coker Ward. * The local Speedwatch team volunteer their time to reduce speeding in the villages, but there is no provision of back-up by the police force. * How will the Police force cope with another 15,538 households? What is the provision in the Local Plan for growing these services? Education * What is planned with County for providing more secondary schools in the District? This should be detailed in the local plan, with details of

The National Planning Policy Framework (DCLG, 2018) states: * Access to a network of high quality open spaces and opportunities for sport and physical activity is important for the health and well-being of communities.

Information gained from the assessments should be

5.94 - And now updated from 1st September 5.99 - This has changed as of Sept 1st so requires a wording change 5.105 - As you know the new regulations has been made: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2019/1103/contents/made ss5 - v.f. great to have the EY,Primary & Secondary detailed here, but better to describe them as education infrastructure rather than under Community facilities, just for clarity. Also in SSDC there are several areas which have 1st, middle & upper schools. We are also in

Care Homes – do we have the skilled workforce required to work in our health care facilities (St. Margaret's are closing their Yeovil facility due to a lack of specialist workforce in the area). What additional healthcare provisions are planned for the additional population expected (15,538 houses)? No details as to the nature of 'health care facilities' is provided in the planning applications, but the demographic changes anticipated in this area point to some very specific requirements that d

The LPR should set out the contributions expected from development including the level and types of affordable housing provision required and other infrastructure for education, health, transport, flood & water management, open space, digital communication, etc. As set out in the 2019 NPPF such policy requirements should not undermine the deliverability of the LPR (para 34). It is important that the Council understands and tests the influence of all inputs on viability as this determines if land

We note that the Community Infrastructure Levy Regulations 2019 have removed the need for Regulation 123 Lists, in favour of annual infrastructure funding statements; this section of the Plan, and Policy SS5 will need to be reviewed in light of the new regulations and its monitoring and reporting requirements. It is notable that, contrary to the statement at paragraph 5.103 of this Plan, the Planning Practice Guidance recognises affordable housing as a type of infrastructure – indeed, it is the

In view of the importance of the local management of AONBs, as the local contribution to these nationally important landscapes, the Local Plan could include within the section on Infrastructure Delivery and Community Infrastructure Levy a facility to direct CIL funds towards AONB management purposes, as identified in the adopted AONB Management Plan.
