4.1 Modifications are proposed by South Somerset District Council to Policy SS5 'Delivering New Housing Growth' to include interim guidance whereby prior to the adoption of the Site Allocations DPD, housing proposals are determined against their consistency with the Policies of the NPPF. Whilst Origin3 does not wholly object to this approach, the NPPF does state at paragraph 186 that the relationship between decision-taking and plan-making should be seamless. In this sense and with specific refe

PMM5 fails to give clarity to how to deal with housing proposals prior to adoption of the Site Allocations DPD for Market Towns that have no defined Strategic Direction of Growth for Housing (eg. Wincanton). Is it to be assumed that the permissive approach will be confined the existing Development Area of the Market Town? Clarity is required. (Comment ID 364 also refers).

LATE REPRESENTATION The Inspector's concern about Policy SS5 and clarity regarding 'Directions of Growth' is supported as is the Council's subsequent proposal to widen the scope of the proposed modification to apply to the rural centres. However, there is a discrepancy between the proposed amendment to paragraph 4.103 and the proposed amendment to Policy SS5 so far as they apply to the market town of Crewkerne.  This is due to Crewkerne being the only Market Town not having an identified 'Dire

Point for Clarification 1 - Policy SS5 - Delivering New Housing Growth 1.8. We have little to comment on in relation to the modification, but question why a permissive approach to growth at Market towns is relevant, but not in the case of Wincanton. We consider that the justification for the extremely restrictive approach to meeting housing needs at Wincanton has not been made. Table 5.1 of the South Somerset Settlement Role and Function Study (April 2009) identifies Wincanton as one of only fo

In its representations at the Examination, Abbey Manor Group (AMG) commented upon the extent to which the policy objectives provided by the 'directions of growth' approach satisfied paragraph 154 of the NPPF. In summary, Paragraph 154 of the NPPF requires Local Plans to set out the opportunities for development and clear policies on what will and will not be permitted and where and in doing so, include only policies that provide a clear indication of how a decision maker should react to a devel

§61 and 62 of the Inspectors conclusions outline his concerns regarding the lack of clarity provided governing development within identified growth areas at Market Towns. MM5 of the modifications proposes the insertion of a new paragraph in an attempt to clarify the Councils position to development in these areas in the interim period until the adoption of the allocations DPD (assumed to be in 2015). Gladman are concerned that the "permissive approach" referred by the modification does not adequ

PMM5 53 states "Prior to the adoption of the Site Allocations Development Plan Document, a permissive approach will be taken when considering housing proposals in 'directions of growth' at the Market Towns. The overall scale of growth (set out below) will be a key consideration in taking this approach, with the emphasis upon maintaining the established settlement hierarchy and ensuring sustainable levels of growth for all settlements. The same key considerations should also apply when considerin

  • Comment ID: 729
We object to Policy SS5 in its current form as it should explicitly extend the permissive approach to Yeovil, as the 'strategically significant town'. The proposed wording of the policy currently gives the impression the permissive approach only applies to 'Market Towns' and 'Rural Centres'. This is at odds with both the need for development and the content of Paragraph 2.14 of the Proposed Main Modifications Consultation Document (November 2013).
