Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Settlement Strategy Scale of Growth for the District and the Main Settlements Employment Jobs and Employment Land Provision Policy SS3: Delivering New Employment Land

  • Comment ID: 1682
We agree the aim of finding a hectare of employment land. That could be available in very small parcels close to the town. Some can be related to training in agricultural production in an area of outstanding quality produce. It is likely that better broadband could bring about more demand for live-work in this attractive area as the nature of work changes over the years and more entrepreneurs are attracted to South Somerset, so we would welcome clarification of how this is to be measured and con

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Economic Prosperity Tourism Tourism Policy EP8: New and Enhanced Tourist Facilities

  • Comment ID: 1683
Tourism could be enhanced by advertising the quality of Conservation planned for the Abbey Park, under Higher Level Stewardship, for which we have been invited to apply. Much of the land in the Parish is noe under DEFRA agreements and there is a footpath to the Flood Detention Barrier,which could be part of an educational offering.

The uniqueness of the town within the District , its form, history and quality of development, especially of the Conservation Area, is emphasised in the adopted Conservation Area Appraisal. This should dictate the quality of future develop-ment, of whatever type, in tandem with the topography of proposed locations within the Area of Special Landscape. Finally I observe that Bruton is a small enough place to make it necessary for all aspects of Planning to need to be considered in an integrated

  • Comment ID: 1679
The requirement for a further 84 dwellings is accepted as feasible. However, the special nature of the settlement and concern for its viability and vitality lead us to believe that special attention should be paid to the provision of housing for professionals,(some of them serving the schools at various levels of seniority).

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Settlement Strategy Infrastructure Delivery Policy SS6: Infrastructure Delivery

  • Comment ID: 1680
There is a need to rebalance the demography of the town in the short term, to support its cultural infrastructure. A boost to Broadband power is needed. An increase in numbers of school-age children is necessary to support the Primary School's offering, and prevent further reduction. There is an imbalance in the provision of small dwellings, of 1 or 2 bedrooms, to be rectified by allowing more family homes. There are other issues that concern us greatly, they are related to the adequacy and up

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Introduction Sustainable Development Policy SD1: Sustainable Development

  • Comment ID: 1681
We suggest a large percentage of the required increase in numbers is likely to be met by infilling of identified sites within the built-up area, over a period of years. Initial development should take up the land designated in the Strategic Housing Land Allocation document, the former County Council Farm fields, which we assume to be included in the required five-year supply This will leave a number of other dwellings to be located gradually over the plan period on small sites within the Parish.
