Consultation Period Due process not followed The SSDC have not carried out due process in the consultation period at the publication of the Planning Policy document. The publication of the hard copy was 4 days late and therefore the full six week period has not been meet as objections had to be received by 10th Aug and no extra time was allowed. This should also be seen in the context that the SSDC were already aware that the con-sultation period was at a minimum and ran 3 weeks into the scho

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

Traffic Cosiderations There has been a complete failure by the SSDC to asses the impact on the roads and traffic congestion if the Urban Extension is located to the south of Yeovil.

There has been no survey on the congestion that would occur with traffic trying to get on to the A30 from Sandhurst Road and Wraxhall Road. Locating the Urban Extension to the South will increase traffic through Yeovil as traffic tri

Public Transport Use The SSDC Planning Policy document makes much of the use of public transport, cycling and walking to achieve a green environment. The fact is that human behaviour does not fit the SSDC's plans. The idea that peoples cars will be park further away from their house than the bus stop so they will use the bus is clearly nonsense. The truth is that builders will not build houses that do not have parking facilities because people will not buy them. The idea that individuals wil

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

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

Infringement of due process In formulating the SSDC's Core Strategy the SSDC failed to carry out due process in looking at all the options for development both in terms of scale and location of any required development. Particularly with regard to any development to the North. West and North East of Yeovil. The SSDC have failed to take into consideration that the Towns main infrastructure facilities all almost all located to the North of the Town. Roads, employment, retail, schools, bus route
