South Somerset Local Plan Review 2016-2036 Preferred Options Consultation (Regulation 18) Market Towns Land west of Station Road Text Block

5.1 The Preferred Options identifies four other sites in Crewkerne in addition to the CLR site to meet the housing requirement for the settlement over the plan period. The sites are:  CR1 – East of Lang Road (100 dwellings)  CR2 – Land Rear of Penlain (100 dwellings)  CR3 – Land West of Station Road (270 dwellings)  CR4 – Land East of Charlton Close (10 dwellings) 5.2 We have concerns over the capacity of some of these sites to deliver the numbers suggested in the draft allocations with

We note generic policies EQ5 and policy SS5. However to ensure that landowners, developers and planning officers are aware of the critical nature of the requirement for enough headroom in the sewage treatment works in this location before any development takes place, we strongly advise you to add a criterion to site specific allocation policies CH1, CH2 and CH3 and CR1, CR2, CR3, CR4 and CR5 about timely and adequate provision for sewage treatment.

I object to the proposal to allocate land at Station Road without proper consideration of the traffic implications. It is erroneous to suggest that no criticial infrastructure is needed as link roads would be provided as developer contributions through the CLR development. CLR has been on the table for nearly 30 years and it has not proceeded, apparently on the basis of the viability of road provision. Other allocations need to be considered under the possibility that those link roads will not

Given the acknowledgement regarding delivery of housing numbers across the district, with under delivery particularly pronounced in Crewkerne, it is essential that the LP Review looks towards other deliverable opportunities. Land at CR3 is deliverable and we submit (separately) a bundle of information relating to technical matters (access, ecology, landscape impact etc) that set this out and provides comfort on delivery of this strategic site. In addition to delivering a significant contributio

Section 7.51 (site CR3) The document does not recognise that site CR3 extends beyond the boundaries of Crewkerne into the parish of Misterton. In fact, two thirds of the site is within Misterton parish. The infrastructure impact of a major housing development on CR3 would therefore mainly be felt in the village of Misterton.

Misterton Parish Council has looked at the preferred options consultation and would like to highlight that two of the sites in Crewkerne have significant implications for Misterton in terms of traffic and infrastructure. Misterton already struggles with high volumes of traffic passing through the village on a road that is not really suitable. It only takes a badly parked car or two HGVs to meet each other from different directions and the whole road and village grinds to a standstill. With this
