I am writing to you in relation to the proposal development of housing north of Newport and next door to Wearne. My family moved to Wearne nearly three years ago, and one of the main attractions was the open green spaces and fields surrounding the area. Since living here, we have also come to appreciate the slight detachment from Huish Episcopi and Langport, as it offers us peace and tranquility. Whilst I accept that housing development is an important issue, I do not accept that it has to be

Claims and ideals of Policy LMT2 fail to provide means of supporting development and expansion of individual identity.

I am writing in support of the HRA conclusion that "there is no likely significant effect in light of proposed changes to the core strategy". The natural England concern that residential development to the south east of Langport has the potential for" Likely Significant Impacts" is clearly flawed. The very existence of the environment that exists there is proof that the addition of some much needed housing will have no detrimental effect at all. The view that extra housing will produce extra do

I am writing to you raise my concerns with the proposed developments in the area specifically the site to the west of Newtown Road. One of my concerns is that any form of development on this site would ruin the natural beauty of the levels and destroy the views. Also, if the proposal was passed this would, in my opinion, lead to an increase in the levels of traffic on an already busy and dangerous stretch of road. My preference and suggestion is for the land behind Old Kelways and on the Some

I am writing to you to comment on the proposed South Somerset Local Plan 2006- 2028 which is in the public domain for representations and comments. I wish to comment on the proposed development areas at Langport/Huish Episcopi, particularly the development in the South Easterly direction from the A372 road. The proposed local plan envisages development in the South East direction from the A372 approximately as far as the existing Abattoir and Meat Processing Plant (AMPP). Due to a representati

Ref Local Plan to 2028: Re. Housing, more of it does not sustain an area. Sustainablity is the consolidation of the quality of life and the natural environment of the existing community. I don't think the Council is concerned for the existing community but is looking towards gaining money from developers and an increased number of local tax-payers. The need for more housng is a myth all the while there are empty properties and also existing houses for sale. As to Employment, why no mention of l

Langport / Huish Episcopi We support the identification of additional housing, employment and community growth at Langport / Huish Episcopi. We further support the principle for strategic growth to the south east of the settlement, but disagree that development in this direction should be for employment use only. The area around Huish Episcopi is considered suitable, in terms of its character, identity, accessibility, role and function to accommodate housing or mixed use development. It is no

Re: Proposed Submission South Somerset Local Plan 2006-2028-Local Plan Policy LMT2 We have been instructed by Mr N. Parfitt who owns land to the north of Old Kelways, Langport. It is considered that the Local Plan is unsound in the context of Policy LMT2 concerning the direction for growth for Langport/Huish Episcopi. The Local Plan Policy LMT2 states that the direction of strategic growth for will be to the north, east and south east of the settlement. It further states that all development m
