SUPERFAST BROADBAND The Plan understates the effect that the arrival of superfast broadband will have on the increase in working from home and the reduced number of commute trips to places of work. I have spent the last 10 years working with Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Somerset and Dorset to assist them in surviving the national recession and lived and worked in South Somerset since 1970, so feel qualified to claim to have an intimate knowledge of the SSDC area and the challenges fac

It is considered unlikely that so many new jobs could be required (see para 3 above). The Yeovil Urban Extension does not seem necessary (see para 5 above). It is curious that there should be such a disparity between expected jobs per hectare in different locations; for example 66 jobs/ha in Yeovil Town and only 15/ha in Ilminster. The existing employment land commitments totalling 119.35 ha should suffice for the time being, with review every three to five years.

Policy SS3 Comment: Policy SS3 is not evidence based and is, therefore, unjustified and unsound for the following reasons: * The Sustainability Appraisal Report (SA-June 2012) makes it clear that South Somerset does not conform to the National norm. Unemployment is around half the national average and the manufacturing sector employs around 25% which is approximately twice the national average (SA 4.3.7) also, there is a shortage of highly skilled young graduates entering the workforce (SA 4.

We submit that the approach taken by the Council under Policy SS3 is flawed and unsound. It grossly overestimates need and risks a substantial over-allocation of employment land across the district but particularly it gives rise to a risk of significant amounts of employment development coming forward within rural centres and rural areas when large scale employment development should clearly be focused in the larger settlements and the market towns. It is also not justified by or supported by th

Employment Development 6.12 The Town Council has also intimated a desire to obtain funding to deliver employment development in Wincanton. The most obvious way to allow funds to be secured to do this would relate to the use of the Government's new homes bonus scheme. 6.13 As the Council will be aware this scheme provides additional funding or a 'bonus' for new homes by match funding the additional council tax raised for new homes and empty properties brought back into use, with an additional a

With regard to Policy SS3 the following points are made in support: * The requirement for an additional 2 hectares of employment land within the Rural Centres, and specifically within South Petherton, is strongly supported on the basis of: i) the approach set out in Table 1 in response to the findings of the Baker Associates Report 'Housing Requirement for South Somerset and Yeovil' (Jan 2011) undertaken since the issue of the draft Core Strategy in October 2010 (as explained on at para 7.1 on
