Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Introduction What is the Local Plan? What is the Local Plan?

  • Comment ID: 2287
I OBJECT to the South Somerset submission Local Plan and the policies therein ("the Plan"). The Plan is not sound or deliverable and is not compliant with European or UK law, regulations or national policy, in particular the NPPF. It is not positive, effective, or justified. It is not based on realistic assumptions or up to date or sufficient evidence, and the assessments made within it are not objective.

  • Comment ID: 2295
The sustainability appraisal process has been inadequate to the task of properly identifying constraints and dealing with them, even after they have been pointed out. It did not properly collect baseline information or identify the key sustainability issues. Acknowledged presumptions, which have been taken forward into the plan, have not been properly appraised or dutifully tested

  • Comment ID: 2303
Repeated reliance has been placed on bare assertion in highways reports. It is noteworthy that there is no properly evidenced, clear or convincing justification of opinions of either the Highways Agency or the Highways Authority with regard to the likelihood of sustainable travel modes to come about from favouring the "preferred option". It also does not make any sense that out-commuting from any particular location of an urban extension in Yeovil should cause unacceptable strain on the Strategi

  • Comment ID: 2308
The plan gives undue prominence to an urban extension to Yeovil in a single location, which is by its nature risky to deliver and unlikely to satisfy the diverse requirements of a diverse, admittedly predominantly rural market, even before factoring in that main infrastructure features and requirements of that favoured strategy have not been costed. More dispersed strategies for growth have not been seriously analysed, despite that they have historically satisfied the market for housing, and de

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Settlement Strategy Settlement Hierarchy Determination of the South Somerset Settlement Hierarchy Determination of the South Somerset Settlement Hierarchy

  • Comment ID: 2316
Much reliance has been placed on a settlement strategy and housing need assessment that did not take account of the effects of Yeovil being within the travel to work area of Sherborne. This despite the fact that in previous studies Yeovil's housing market and travel to work areas were categorised as including Sherborne and West Dorset, and West Wiltshire (see Taunton and South Somerset SHMA). The duty that the council has to co-operate with neighbouring authorities is important in that context,

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Environmental Quality Pollution Control Policy EQ7: Pollution Control

  • Comment ID: 2324
It is important to note in this context that Yeovil being an Air Quality Management Area would suffer even more from air pollution that is carried by the prevailing southerly and westerly winds from a location to the south and west, into Yeovil

1. Alternative 1: substitute 15,950 with 14,000, being the optimistic latest forecast by Baker Associates which is in the evidence base and sufficiently close to the 13,600 home figure which has been consulted and appraised. It is therefore positive and evidence based (although in my view even 14,000 is likely to be a wild overestimate of what is necessary to accommodate business and job growth in South Somerset over the Plan period). This approach is superior to the methodology used by SSDC, as

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

  • Comment ID: 2340
I reject the adoption of a CIL scheme and say that it has not been appraised properly and it would dramatically affect development, particularly the Schedule that has so far been proposed. The evidence base in the Infrastructure Delivery Plan is not sound, it does not include anything like what would be required to deliver an Urban Extension, nor is this amount made up elsewhere
