I am concerned re additional doctors/schools/dentist as presently doctors are not coping now. What are your plans for additional doctors. This area does get flooded/water logged what will be done? Badgers/deer/kites what and where will they go? What plans are in place?

Somerton is described as a Market Town. Not anymore with the amount of houses already being built. I question whether the town has the infrastructure to cope with the extra housing. The doctors surgery & NHS dentist and the chemist all seem to struggle at present, never mind when all the houses are built and occupied! I appreciate people have to live somewhere but the majority of houses are large and very expensive. The young people who have been born & raised in Somerton have no chance to buy.

Settlement Status Somerton is classed as local market town lets keep it that way. Retail is not strong in the town, eg. chemist is unable to cope with the demand. Employment may be increasing but this is not always for the local people, employees travel into town thus creating parking problems and adding to carbon emissions.

7.191 – I refer to my previous point regarding the school in 7.181 in that this school was not planned to allow further housing development but was to address the current increase in housing that is taking place. 7.192 – I refer to my previous point regarding the flood risk in Ricksey Lane which will only be exacerbated id further development of this area is permitted.

Sir - Further to comments shared at the consultation 22.8.19. We profoundly oppose ANY further allocation of new housing in Somerton. The existing sites identified with planning permission or outlined are excessive in relation to the available infrastructure. The historic Town Centre and associated character of the settlement was substantially effected by post war development. This was absorbed into the community with careful planning. The last decade has required sacrifices to be made I order

MAP - Your map - you do not have the new housing developments already in construction on it - why not? **Somerton Town Plan - Have you read it? Promoting healthy and safe communications - The Buttercross health Centre in Somerton is overwhelmed with patients now with only 70+ David Wilson Homes 90+ Bovis Homes already occupied + 59Cartway. With 161 (DW) + 133 (BH) and 140 (Fairfax) +140 (this development) and infill we have 574 new homes +infill. This is more than 25% increase on our 2300+home
