Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Settlement Strategy Settlement Hierarchy Sustainabilty Appraisal Policy SS1: Settlement Hierarchy

  • Comment ID: 1268
Policy SS1 Settlement Hierarchy identifies Langport, along with Huish Episcopi, as a local market town. Whilst its potential for growth is considered more limited than some of the other primary Market Towns, Langport/Huish Episcopi has been re-graded from a rural centre emphasising the plan for growth in the town. We support the designation of Langport/Huish Episcopi within the proposed hierarchy of settlements.

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

  • Comment ID: 1276
2.3.1 Policy SS5 distributes the requirement for 15,950 dwellings (plus an additional 5% buffer) over the plan period. 7,815 dwellings are proposed to be located within or adjacent to Yeovil. We believe that this proposed distribution is disproportionate having regard to the role and function of other settlements in the district and their need for growth and/or maintaining their role as a sustainable settlement. 2.3.2 There is too greater emphasis on long term development and larger allocated s

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: 1271
2.2.1 Policy SS4 states that provision will be made to meet the overall District wide housing target of 15,950 over the plan period (2006-2028). 2.2.2 The Housing Requirement Study published in January 2011 found a requirement of 16,000 dwellings across the district based on the creation of 11,200 jobs between 2006-2026. A slower growth rate scenario resulting in 7,200 jobs was also considered however, the figure of 11,200 was deemed to be most closely in line with the Council's objectives for

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Market Towns - Vision and Proposals Local Market Towns - Langport/Huish Episcopi What will the Local Plan Deliver? Langport/Huish Episcopi - What will the Local Plan Deliver? Policy LMT2

  • Comment ID: 1279
2.4.1 Policy LMT2 directs growth to the north, east and south east of the Langport/HuishEpiscopi highlighted on the proposals map. It highlights the need for open space to be provided due to the proximity to Conservation areas. 2.4.2 We generally support the direction of growth identified on the Proposals Map subject to priority being given to those sites which are adjacent to and most closely related to the existing urban area. As recognised within the Local Plan, there are currently few sites

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Spatial Portrait of South Somerset Spatial Portrait of South Somerset

  • Comment ID: 1264
We generally agree with the spatial portrait of the District as it is described within chapter 2 of the draft Local Plan. South Somerset is clearly a challenging District within which to plan for development. However, we consider that there are opportunities to deliver growth which the evidence base makes clear is much needed as a result of the limited access to local housing across the whole district with specific need in more rural areas.
