LATE REPRESENTATION I suggest that it suits Ilminster's new houses proposals best if they went 175 to the West and 175 to the East - or thereabouts. Run out of time!

LATE REPRESENTATION We support the recommendations of the South Somerset Local Plan. The southern urban extension seems more sensible in that the proposed development relates well to the town centre of Yeovil with good proximity to Yeovil Junction Station and with proposed new walking and cycling routes. The proposed development also relates well to the existing housing and road network. We think that the Chithorne Domer site is too remote and would be difficult to integrate with the rest of

LATE REPRESENTATION I wish to support the SSDC's decision to recommend that Ilminster grows south-eastwards. I walk the footpaths between Canal Way and Herne Hill and am upset that they may be lost or moved to accommodate housing. The 'stop line' cutting is a treasure and access through leafy walkways is a delight. This plan has had full consultation and I thought was agreed?! Why a few now decide they don't want their views spoilt by housing development; so this should be moved to the othe

LATE REPRESENTATION I object to the following in the local plan, resulting from the Yeovil urban extension, on the following issues. Road Network The location of the development will encourage car usage as the only way to Yeivil will be Hendford Hill or Forest Hill, only the fittest will be able to cycle up these hills. I suggest that perhaps the councillors making these important decisions, actually use these routes at peak times to see how they get totally congested at peak times. The road

LATE REPRESENTATION I feel extremely saddened and very angry that the site for development within East Coker Parish could even be considered for 'Urban Extension', as almost the entire area is Grade 1 Agricultural Land. As you are no doubt aware, this is the highest quality and most versatile farming land! Who would even consider destroying such a valuable site, to slap millions of tonnes of concrete on such a precious area destroying it forever would be completely criminal in my view. We are a

LATE REPRESENTATION I still believe the proposed development in south Yeovil between the villages of Barwick and East Coker to be an unsuitable development both in its scale and location for a number of reasons. 1. Population The population of Yeovil has already increased dramatically over the last 30 to 40 years with recent large building developments taking place on the Abbey Manor Estate, Lufton and Houndstone estates, Lyde Road and the Wyndham Estate. The Thorne Lane/Brimsmore Development

LATE REPRESENTATION Dark Skies The area to the south of Yeovil is a designated a Dark Skies area. The construction of an Urban extension in this area would would be contrary to this designation.

LATE REPRESENTATION Government Wellbeing Policy The Government have recently published a policy document that highlights the importance of of wellbeing within the community. Headed by Sir Gus O'Donnell which aims to promote Wellbeing at the heart of supporting a better life for its citizens and helping to build resilient communities. An Urban Extension in the centre of East Coker civil parish would destroy this community and would be in direct competition to this policy. In addition on natio

SSDC appear to have corrupted and destroyed data to meet their objective Through an FOI request it has been revealed that the SSDC have destroyed documents that are the heart of the democratic process. At the start of developing the Core Strategy, Cluster Workshops were held with Parish and District Councillors. At these workshop participants were asked to select areas within the Yeovil area which they thought would be suitable for development. At the first meeting not one group came up with

Scale Of the development in Yeovil It is a generally held view that the SSDC have hyped the the numbers of dwellings and industrial units required in the area in order to satisfy the needs of a much favoured developer who has land ownership within the area proposed for the Urban Extension. If the numbers are brought to a more realistic level then the Urban Extension is not triggered which would mean that building within the Civil Parish of East Coker would not be needed saving Grade 1 land for
