Ilchester

No comments as the allocations are located in FZ 1.
Local Plan indicates good road links via the A303 important to Ilchester. SFRA and Local Plan both identify flood risk on this route, and we note that Highways England currently looking at scheme here.
The Local Plan identifies potential need to improve the existing standard of protection of the main flood defences. However, it does not consider how this evolves with climate change, and how this may impact on the existing community.
