Paragraphs 5.66 and 8.47 We support an increase in employment land allocation. We are very concerned that the net daily out-commute to work from the village, now about 80%, makes Martock increasingly economically unsustainable. We favour extensions of employment sites such as Stoke Road and Bower Hinton where transport links to the A303 are best. We note, with support, that planning permission has been granted for a considerable expansion of the capacity of the Sparrows site north of the B3165
