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: 357
I Object to the Figure for prospective dwellings of 15,950 2006 to 2028 (in Planning Policy SS4 and Para 4.81 of the Local Plan) (i.e. more or less 725 new dwellings per year) as it is excessive for the following reasons: given a population of SS of approx 160,000 and UK of 63 Million thereabouts, this would equate to a UK house building programme of 285,000 per year. Only around about 188,000 seem to be being built a year on average (whatever the stated government aspirations) (this is based on

Para 5.8 recognises the importance of the environs yet the proposed Yeovil Urban Extension will significantly degrade all aspects talked about therein given in particular that once set in train it will itself expand (the latter is noted elsewhere within the plan).

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Yeovil - Vision and Proposals What should the Local Plan deliver? Housing Housing & Policy YV1

Notwithstanding other representations, I OBJECT to 5.16, 5.17 and YV1 Policy wording in regard planning provision of additional housing of qty 935 beyond 2028. This is outside the plan period. In addition it appears the topic of expansion outside of the plan period is potentially influencing the urban extension plans within the local plan's effectivity period. There may be a legal angle to this possibly too? Furthermore, provisioning greenfields development options will likely result in this be

I Object to para 5.15 Bullet points - These are extremely weak arguments and don't appear backed by any substantial analysis. A more distributed / organic approach would aid sustainability.

  • Comment ID: 361
I Object to YV1 as currently written: An Urban extension is completely contrary to national planning policy framework on many levels not least sustainability. Specifically on the transport and congestion aspect, although it is worthy to consider people may like to find ways other than car to travel into parts of the town, this is unrealistic in the near term for non-recreational trips given the geographic spread of services and shops around the town and the very steep hill in and out in respect

5.21 - This could do with being put more positively.

Fig 4 – It is noted that the proposed Urban Extension is on the periphery of the South Somerset area and has it's back to all of the market towns and rural settlements. This can't be good for cohesion of the SS area in terms of communications with the rest of the SS area.
