Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Foreword

  • Comment ID: 846
I object to this Local Plan Submission due to fact of it having been published in terms beyond easy comprehension of the general public. In addition, the investigations and studies supporting proposed policies are based on out of date analyses, fail to consider geography and natural attributes, content in sections contradict details in other sections. In particular, this plan displays an unprecedented bias in favour of one location for future development of Yeovil's environs. It is suspected fe

5.20 Diminishing industry around eastern entrance to the town provides ideal opportunity for redevelopment of superior designed office space with adjacent multi-storey car park to accommodate commuting vehicles exiting the A30 dual carriageway from Sherborne.

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

  • Comment ID: 697
Explanatory paragrpahs create confusion of intent. Either the Council wishes to promote and increase the industry or it considers growth to be unacceptible. "..... enhanced tourist facilities will be supported where: They are of a scale appropriate to the size and function of the settlement within which they are to be located." For any business to be successful, it must expand and increase turnover, number of visits therefore amenities to support the growing volume.

This is the most logical location for accommodating the Sustainable developments desired for Yeovil. Incorporation of the Urban Village and Sustainable Urban Extension can be accommodated by linking frailty of the Pen Mill area uses with northern acreages by embracing full use of the River Yeo as an artery link for sustainable transport, and the populations independent modes of healthy mobility.

11.3 Another justification for incorporating route of the River Yeo and utilising its water and banks to benefit all new development within Yeovil's proposals.

5.26 Reasoning is unsound and untrue. 5.27 to 5.31 only debates factors prevalent in south and west areas. Claims of comparative study with other options are unbalanced, especially when merit of river Yeo and ongoing construction works in the Lyde Road quarter are being ignored. "land availability in terms of landowner and developer intent" infers 'back pocket' payments because freehold is in private ownership in most of the available land circulating present town boundaries. Developers will ne

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Yeovil - Vision and Proposals What should the Local Plan deliver? Yeovil Sustainable Urban Extension Future Masterplanning Future Masterplanning and Policy YV2

  • Comment ID: 677
I object to Policy YV2 on the grounds of its detriment to the environment and historic aspects of the locale, flagrant disregard of NPPF and the Councils own dictates for justifying planning proposals as detailed in Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the Proposed Submission South Somerset Local Plan 2006 - 2028. Suggested changes are submitted to make the DPD legally compliant and sound.

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Strategic Objectives and Vision The Vision for 2028 The Vision for 2028

  • Comment ID: 646
The Vision contradicts reality of damage that will be caused to environment of the area. Too many aspects are ignored or glossed over to justify the introductory claims in 1.7 to 1.14 and especially "1.15 ..... the applicant will need to assist by submitting evidence to demonstrate how the benefits of the proposal outweigh any adverse impacts."
