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

  • Comment ID: 1783
As a resident of Lower Ansford I am writing to you regarding the above, what does this actually mean? We have existing sites already in Ansford BMI, Hillcrest School which are both complete eye sores & spoil the rest of the town. These have remained empty for years & years & are deteriating rapidly & have never been built on. The Two Swans in Castle Cary is another eyesore & again has remained empty for years, so please tell me what happens with all of these sites?

For the reasons set out in this submission I am of the view that the Local Plan fails the NPPF tests of soundness. I consider that the SSDC Local Plan Policy SS4 is unsound and not justified. 1. At paragraph 4.82 of the Local Plan SSDC indicated that the key startlng point for housing provision was a Sustainability Appraisal of Options that considered three options 75%/25% split both ways (Yeovil and others) and 50%/50%. 1 am unable to identify a SA showing these options as the starting point.

Abbey Manor Group objects to Policy SS5 and the proposed distribution of housing through the District and between main settlements. In summary: - The level of housing at Yeovil should be increased. - The level of housing at Chard should be reduced. - The level of housing in Wincanton should be increased. - The capacity of the South Yeovil strategic urban extension has been overstated. - Too great a reliance is placed on Windfalls as a source of future housing supply. - There is insufficien

Overall support is given for the distribution of housing growth in as much as it focuses the bulk of development on the District's largest town, Yeovil and on the market towns which demonstrate better access to jobs, services and facilities and which in turn helps to reduce the need to travel, where housing needs are better met and where rural settlements can be better protected. Support is also given for the enhanced status of Langport/Huish Episcopi from a Rural Centre to a Local Market Town

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

Owing to its role and function as well as its potential for high levels of self containment, provision is made in draft Policy SS5 for 1,861 dwellings in Chard. Of this provision, 1,340 dwellings can be attributed to strategic allocations (72%) which are intended to address the physical constraints to growth. Historic failure of delivery Paragraph 6.10 of the emerging Local Plan confirms that the South Somerset Local Plan allocation KS/CHAR/1 has failed to be delivered and therefore proposed n

The Plan does not conform to the National Planning Policy Framework. Inter alia, the Plan is particularly at variance with the following NPPF paragraphs in respect of the need for a rural District such as South Somerset to support sustainable development of Rural Communities – NPPF 17,54,55 The Plan is at variance with NPPF in respect of the proposed housing requirement of 15,950. This is too high and is not supported by evidence contrary to NPPF 47. Objective evidence recently assessed

SS5 DISTRIBUTION OF HOUSING GROWTH AND SUPPORTING TEXT 4.82-4.103 1 David Wilson Homes (DWH) object to the distribution of housing growth set out in Policy SS6 and the supporting text. This is based on the published overall housing figure of 15,970 dwellings to which DWH object. 2 In particular: * There is a need to reassess windfall assumptions made at Yeovil. * This figure should be redistributed to Chard, and other market towns. * At Chard housing numbers should be increased to address a

We strongly object to the proposed spatial distribution of new housing development in the district. This distribution can be summarised as follows: See Table under Paragraph 5.2 of the attached document. 5.3 This table clearly demonstrates that in terms of new allocations to be provided in the new Local Plan both Wincanton and Crewkerne will accommodate an extremely low proportion of the new housing allocations that will be accommodated in the district, this runs contrary to their identified ro
