Introduction The aim of the Bruton Town Planning Policy is to define Bruton's planning policy over the period 2013-28 in order to ensure that sustainable growth for the town is in line with local wishes. History More than any of the other settlements of South Somerset, Bruton's current configuration is the product of its geography and its history, in combination. It is a deep valley settlement at the point where six valleys meet. Its layout was largely determined in the 151h century, when the

We maintain that PMM4 and the consequent revised policy SS3 are unsound in their current form. This is on the basis that: 1. It remains completely inappropriate and illogical to have a "target" to develop a particular quantum of employment land within Rural Settlements, particularly given that under the emerging plan the term Rural Settlements includes not only the villages themselves but also the open countryside. Whilst clearly there should be scope for job creation, appropriate small scale d

With respect to the table entry for Ilchester: The quantity of extra employment land is neither here nor there, but can SSDC please provide sight the survey of local commercial agents? The reference to this survey is unsound unless and until SSDC produce this evidence; otherwise, delete the statement.

With respect to the table entry for Ilchester: what and where are the four different sources of evidence which identify the demand?  This statement appears to have been copied and pasted throughout the table.

With respect to the table entry for Ilchester:Time and again we see SSDC injecting comment and confusion about RNAS Yeovilton. It is obvious that any MoD jobs will only be accommodated on MoD land - which is vast. Was it really necessary to seek confirmation, and can you produce the documentary evidence?

Pent up?  This is totally unfounded and wholly incorrect opinion. Apart from the air station, the biggest employer here is Norseland (owners of the Ilchester Cheese factory). They have expanded in recent years, and have filled their vacancies with migrant European workers. They have further land for expansion, and any such expansion will be solely governed by their success as a business  Two farms, Southmead and Greenstalls, bordering on but outside of Ilchester parish boundary (and therefore di
