It is clear that Bruton as a Rural Centre is a sustainable location for development, suitable for accommodating additional housing growth during the Local Plan Review plan period. Additional housing development at Bruton would support existing services, facilities and businesses, and enhance the vitality of the community. Our client's site at Land South of Brewham Road, Bruton should be identified as a housing allocation for 60 dwellings within the emerging South Somerset Local Plan Review. The

Below is my response to the Local Plan Review 2016-2036 document. My points are mainly in response to the housing development plan for Bruton. I believe that Land BT1 is not suitable for development for the following reasons: The land is large enough to accommodate over 100 houses. Any developer would probably attempt to develop to the full extent. This would result in an overdevelopment of this area of Bruton, and indeed Bruton as a whole. Even if the suggested 60 homes were adhered to, this i

Bruton has always been favourable to expansion and growth and has seen several new developments over the last 30 or so years. The town accepts the need for growth in order for the community to continue to thrive, but expansion must be carefully managed and planned so as not to have an adverse affect on the area. Planning applications must respect the topography of the area and developers and their agents should ensure they familiarise themselves with the area and it's infrastructure and should c

I consider that 152 houses is too many. Bruton does not have the infrastructure on many fronts. As I write there have been two burst water mains , one on Brewham Road (for the third time) and another on the Frome road. The medical services are severely stretched and some are not occupied. There is one important aspect missing from your review. PARKING. The parking in Bruton is very much lacking in capacity. I have a radical solution which is not original. Move the primary school to the area oppo

Policy BT1: discussion 3.4 The Council's response at the Issues and Options Consultation was that it would 'support the construction of low-density housing on this 'north' site consistent with its semi-rural location'. The Council also supported similarly low-density housing being constructed on land to the south of Brewham Road immediately opposite this site (the 'south' site). 3.5 Outline planning consent has since been sought to construct 60 dwellings on the south site. The Council rec

At present there are 70 properties under construction and 60 at planning approval stage in Bruton. All of these are in the northern part of the town close to the proposed site shown on the local plan off the Brewham road. There are only four major roads out of Bruton with only one on the northern side of Bruton going towards Frome . The other three routes out are the most used in Bruton.This means any vehicles from these new properties on this side of town have to pass through the narrowest 'A'

The Bruton preferred option is unsuitable for development until the following is considered: * Please comment on the concrete drainage work installed under this field in the early 1990s.This was described at the time as important to manage the water run-off from the Priory Mead development. The Committee should consider the impact on existing housing of disruption to the infrastructure that already exists under this field. A previous development caused flooding to homes nearby in 2011.

Bruton Town Council's response to the Issues and Options Consultation states "respondents to our Town Plan Survey were, unsurprisingly, mostly opposed to further development". Why are we not being listened to? The results of the town survey list the north of the Brewham Road (BT1) as the fourth choice – behind Frome Road/Country Fields, Cole Road and south of the Brewham Road. Why has Cole Road been omitted from the Local Plan Review when this would be infill and lie within the perimeter of the

Policy BT1 - Bruton We note that the allocated site at Brewham Road is relatively close to ancient woodland Hill's Wood. While we feel the proposed location is at sufficient distance to not be a threat to Hill's Wood, we support existing access points to avoid loss of a mature hedge which is an important habitat in itself and which forms part of the wider ecological network of the ancient woodland and beyond.

BT1 – No vehicular access should be provided onto Brewham Road. All vehicular access should be westwards into the existing housing estate. Pedestrian and cycling infrastructure should be improved along Brehwam Road.
