Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Settlement Strategy Distribution of Housing Growth Market Deliverability Market Deliverability Policy SS5: Delivering New Housing Growth

  • Comment ID: 1155
Overall support is given for the distribution of housing growth in as much as it focuses the bulk of development on the District's largest town, Yeovil and on the market towns which demonstrate better access to jobs, services and facilities and which in turn helps to reduce the need to travel, where housing needs are better met and where rural settlements can be better protected. Support is also given for the enhanced status of Langport/Huish Episcopi from a Rural Centre to a Local Market Town

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Settlement Strategy Scale of Growth for the District and the Main Settlements Housing Policy SS4: District Wide Housing Provision

  • Comment ID: 1151
Objection on the basis that the scale of housing growth within the District has been reduced. This is a reduction on the Proposed South West RSS requirement based on further local evidence; and reduced again, being linked to employment growth which is reduced due to the current economic climate. * No reference is made to the most recent population projections just released. * No account has been taken of cross boundary issues and how to deal with the implications of potential under provision a

  • Comment ID: 1156
Objection is made to the inclusion of sites 'Allocated (but without permission)': Tables 4 and 5 and Policy SS5 identify the residual number of dwellings to be allocated within the new Local Plan. Reference is made to 53 dwellings which are 'allocated (but without permission). It is not clear as to what this refers to. If they are existing allocations which have not yet gained planning permission, then there is a significant question as to whether they are deliverable and developable as defined

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

The Planning Inspectorate has suggested that all Local Plans should contain a policy which clearly sets out this objective and have prepared a model policy for this purpose. Policy SD1 has been based on the Model Policy but does not replicate it exactly. Whilst the model policy is just that – a model, it has been carefully pr
