Updated Sustainability Appraisal We object on the basis that this Proposed Main Modification is not justified as the conclusions of the additional assessment is considered to be flawed as it fails to properly consider the impact of splitting the housing and employment component into two separate urban extensions; and it fails also to properly consider the environmental consequences of the split site arrangement. Unfortunately, despite being criticized by the Inspector in his preliminary conclu

1.        Sustainability scores used by SSDC are inaccurate. The data cannot be trusted and is being challenged.

3. The environmental and undulating value of Shudrick Valley (east) has been recognized in the SA, as against Canal Way (west).  Attempts by the opponents of the western option to enhance the loss of the Herne Hill environment, were made that construction of houses would carry on right up to the tree line of Herne Hill, (as wrongly shown on the amended plan of the western option) whereas the District Council maintain it would be limited to a level area just south of Canal Way.

5 CPRE welcomes the acceptance by SSDC that the proposed development at East Coker would destroy Best & Most Versatile (BMV) farmland as well as affect heritage assets and landscape. SSDC seeks to reduce the overall loss by cutting the number of new dwellings on greenfield land from 2,500 (of which 935 would in any case have applied to the next Plan period) to 1,565, of which 800 would be at East Coker and 765 at Mudford. It is understood that much of the Mudford site is BMV land, though perhaps

The conclusion drawn and summarised within Paragraph 2.17 of  the consultation document (Ref. 1) is based to a significant degree on the Sustainability Appraisal Report (Ref. 2) with other factors such as deliverability and availability also taken into account. Four areas of the Sustainability Appraisal Report (SA) will be considered: 9. Protect and enhance the landscape and townscape  Ref. 2 Appendix II pII-56 states:  The cumulative effect of a number of smaller scale developments on the la

Introduction I am writing on behalf of Charles Bishop Limited who have relevant land interests in the Keyford area, and also on my own personal behalf. Summary We consider the modification to Policy YV2 to be 'Not Justified', simply because inadequate justification appears to have been given for the change from one Sustainable Urban Extension (SUE) to two. It also seems that very little specific justification been given for the choice of the two smaller Sustainable Urban Extensions. We can

Naming of the area - please note that the Shruddrick Valley runs the length of Ilminster and that the East end of down only covers the Upper Valley. The Sustainability Appraisal(SA) needs to be completely relooked at; 1. Improve Access to Essential Services and Facilities The SA implies that the West option is the best solution because it is closer to the New medical centre. Please note that a medical centre is not the only essential service required in a town or the only facilities. The East
