South Somerset Local Plan Review 2016-2036 Preferred Options Consultation (Regulation 18) Market Towns Land west of Wincanton Business Park and New Barns Farm Text Block

We support the allocation of this site for Residential development but consider that the percentage of Affordable Housing should not be confirmed until the plan wide viability has been completed or the current application determined. This allocation should also identify that there are significant infrastructure costs which include the servicing of the employment land which may impact on the sites ability to deliver the full requested quantum of community benefits

Allocation WN1 proposes 220 dwellings alongside public open space and play areas. Notwithstanding the comments above questioning the housing numbers and strategy for housing growth - without prejudicing those comments if Wincanton must take the additional numbers proposed then WN1 is supported given its designation in the adopted plan. We do however question if other sites within the town on brownfield land, possibly as mixed-use modern employment and housing, could not be developed and thus ac

POLICY WN1 – HOUSING GROWTH WEST OF WINCANTON BUSINESS PARK This location is adjacent to a minor ordinary watercourse with FZ3 mapped from our Cale 2005 model. The 0.1%AEP scenario was not modelled and as such the FZ2 extents in this area have been drawn to match FZ3. Given the age and 1D nature of this model there is room for improvement of the flood risk mapping - not clear how the flood risk to these sites might change when considering latest climate change guidance. Flood risk at these sites

As referred to above, the quantum of housing to be allocated to Wincanton is higher than should be required under NPPF New Housing Delivery Test requirements. If it is accepted that the housing target is incorrect, the housing figure of 220 dwellings should also be reduced in Policy WN1. Notwithstanding the additional quantum of housing proposed for Wincanton, the direction of growth proposed appears appropriate and sustainable and consistent with the Wincanton Neighbourhood plan and I fully sup

This site does not have direct access to the Morrisons roundabout and is not capable of taking access from it. Access will be from a new arm off the Lawrence Hill roundabout. Amend text to reflect the fact that access will be taken from a new arm off the Lawrence Hill Roundabout

Policy WN1 seeks to allocate a site west of Wincanton Business Park and New Barns Farm for residential development to provide 220 dwellings.

Policy WN2 seeks to allocate approximately 4.8ha of employment land west of the Wincanton Business Park. Whilst Gladman support the Council's recognition that Wincanton is a sustain
