Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Yeovil - Vision and Proposals What should the Local Plan deliver? Delivering Sustainable Travel at the Yeovil Sustainable Urban Extension Policy YV6

  • Comment ID: 1917
Policy YV6 is broadly supported; however, it is noted that the Transport and Accessibility Chapter of the Local Plan includes a policy for delivering sustainable travel in the existing towns of Yeovil and Chard, as well as district wide sustainable transport policies. It is noted that University of the West of England report on behalf of the Department of Health South West advocates an innovative approach to integrated transport planning in Yeovil.

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Transport and Accessibility A Generic District wide Modal Shift Policy Measures to Encourage Sustainable travel at Chard and Yeovil Measures to Encourage Sustainable travel at Chard and Yeovil Policy TA3

  • Comment ID: 2378
Policy TA3 Sustainable Travel at Chard and Yeovil is in principle supported, but what is provided at the Yeovil sustainable urban extension will ultimately depend on the viability of the proposal as it is established through the masterplan. Reference should be made to "Viability Testing Local Plans" produced by the Local Housing Delivery Group chaired by Sir John Harman.

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

  • Comment ID: 1920
Subject only to comments from our Clients in relation to the overall housing provision (Policy SS4) the settlement strategy is broadly supported, particularly the emphasis on Yeovil which continues to be recognised as a Strategically Significant Town as originally identified in the RSS. Yeovil is the largest settlement in terms of population and employment and also has the greatest propensity to generate additional growth, hence its identification in the RSS. Yeovil is the second largest town i

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Transport and Accessibility Travel Plans Policy TA4: Travel Plans

  • Comment ID: 1964
Whilst the principles of Policy TA4: Travel Plans is supported it is considered that Table 2 included in the policy is overly prescriptive. The NPPF paragraph 36 states that a key tool to facilitate the use of sustainable transport modes for the movement of goods and people is a Travel Plan and all developments that generate a significant amount of movements should be required to provide a Travel Plan. It is noted that Policy TA4 is based on Somerset County Council guidance on Travel Planning,

Policy HW1: Provision of open space, outdoor playing space, sports, cultural and community facilities in new development is in principle supported; the overriding factor will be the viability of the proposed development.

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Settlement Strategy Scale of Growth for the District and the Main Settlements Employment Jobs and Employment Land Provision Policy SS3: Delivering New Employment Land

  • Comment ID: 1921
It is noted that the Council regard the most important determinant of growth should be the employment growth projections and that the distribution of jobs and homes across the District is derived from the presumption that the past economic performance of the District's settlements and rural areas, is repeated into the future. It is also noted that the Council's evidence base "Housing Requirement for South Somerset and Yeovil" (January 2011) confirms the robust nature of the District's employmen

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: 1922
It is a concern that the overall provision of 15,950 dwellings in the plan period 2006 – 2028 is lower than the figure included in the Draft Core Strategy (16,600 dwellings) and significantly below the provision proposed in the RSS (Secretary of States Proposed Changes 2008) i.e. 19,700 dwellings. Adjust to account for the different period would give a figure of 21,670 dwellings to 2028. Furthermore the latest ONS (2008 based) household projections indicate, when converted to dwellings th

Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Environmental Quality Design/General Development Design/General Development Policy EQ2

  • Comment ID: 2383
In principle Policy EQ2: General Development is supported. In essence the policy is consistent with the NPPF paragraph 7 which states that there are three dimensions to sustainable development: economic, social and environmental. These roles should not be undertaken in isolation, because they are mutually dependent, there should be net gains across all three dimensions. It is noted that the Council intend to produce and update design guidance which will be delivered through the Development Mana
