Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Settlement Strategy Scale of Growth for the District and the Main Settlements Employment Employment

  • 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

The following text to Policy SS3: Delivering Employment Land is supported as providing justification to this policy: 4.53 - Agreed that the Council's approach to the distribution of jobs across the District ought to be derived from the presumption that the past economic performance of the District's settlements and rural areas is repeated into the future - given that there are no significant changes to the proposed settlement hierarchy.

There has also been no consideration of the fact that despite the strong connection for work and the common travel to work area with Sherborne and the northern part of West Dorset, there is little migration between West Dorset and South Somerset. Given that the Plan's main strategy and most dominant and sometimes only consideration appears to be to reduce in-commuting to Yeovil, and that the evidence base is clear that much of the in-commuting comes from West Dorset, and that changes in behaviou

Assumptions about employment and the "aspirations for growth in Yeovil" do not take account of the economic downturn or the increased trend for homeworking. It is also totally unrealistic to "provide one job per dwelling" in the Urban Extension. This would mean 2,500 jobs! Ref: Scale of Growth for the District and the Main Settlements

Grade 1 Land Building an Urban Extension to the South of Yeovil would destroy Acres of Grade 1 land which the NPPF endeavours to protect and will be essential for food security in the future, Grade 1 land will produce 2 crops a year which is not the case with Grade 2 and 3 land, there are other sites with the town where development could take place which would not be on Grade 1 land and therefore protect this valuable asset.
