Childcare and healthcare services are operating at, or beyond, capacity in the town. Adding additional development to the town centre, (such as the CR2 development idea), without any additional facilities is not sustainable and will lead to increased pressure on these services and on the road network. The roads in the town centre are narrow and totally unsuitable for the HGVs and volume of traffic that comes though. Infrastructure aimed at reducing traffic volumes in the town centre should be pr

7.61 - As above, SCC do not have any agreement that the developer will build, that we know about, although it is a preference in many cases. Does SSDC have an understanding with them?. This 10 class 1st school with nursery planned will be part replacement and part need from new development. 7.65 - this statement is correct, and as above the anticipated new school and nursery would improve this infrastructure.

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

I object to the proposal to develop land at the scale proposed 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

Sections 7.64 and 7.65 These sections refer to health and education provision and correctly point out that current facilities are at or close to capacity. This emphasises the point made above that CLR should be highlighted as the priority site, because of the associated improvements to the town's infrastructure.

Symphony Healthcare Services appear to be failing Crewkerne in their provision - doctor's appointments are difficult to get, doctors are leaving and being replaced by locums, patients do not have a dedicated doctor leaving them feeling uncared for. Large increases in population will affect this. Childcare provision should be centrally funded, not reliant on hoping to recruit childminders who are poorly paid and have to comply with rules and regulations that cost them money.
