The Consultation process has not been transparent or effective .The "rules "seem to have changed after the initial consultation . It was not clear on the bus that a different option was now the favoured one. the Town Council changing their mind at the last minute for whatever reason does not constitute open consulation . The reasons for altering the original plan seem vague and without foundation .Ilminster does not need a relief road ,I understand an independant report has indicated that . Ther

The consultation process - in particular on the change from Option 2 to Option 1 - has been so opaque that gossip is now rife about underhand behaviour. I doubt this is the case, but it has been so ill-publicised, so vaguely announced, that there has been frankly negligible opportunity for comment. I'm not a lawyer (and this whole document seems designed for lawyers rather than the concerned citizen), but I DO have 8 years experience as a Councillor on a Planning Committee; and in my opinion it

Para. 6.68 and 6.87: "Ilminster is the fourth-largest settlement in South Somerset with a population of approximately 4,499 people."; "Wincanton's population of 4,978 makes it the 5th largest settlement in the District in terms of population." Contradictory statements.

We support the DPD as it has been legally discussed and agreed. No further discussion should be necessary.

I OPPOSE the proposal to change the development from Option2 to Option 1 on the grounds of insufficient consultation with the majority of the electorate of Ilminster. The town council have been patently opaque in pursuing a proved to be unnecessary "Bypass" by professionals, ie Atkins. Development should be towards the main transport links to the centres of employment, ie Exeter , Taunton, Yeovil etc, and utilise the existing and available brown-field site.

I OBJECT TO OPTION 1. The Council's seemingly deliberate obfuscation of the reasons for changing Option 2 to Option 1 seems to indicate a hidden agenda. Until this is clarified Option 1 should not go ahead. Preserve the beauty of Shudrick Valley.

I write to expess my concerns about what is proposed for this beautiful South Somerset valley which is an area of natural unspoilt countryside. The policy is unsound because I believe there has been insufficent and inefficient consultation with the public in Ilminster about the change from option 2 Canal Way to Option 1 Shudrick Valley for housing development and the proposed relief road - it was only seemingly discussed with the town council. The proposed Shudrick Valley site is a steeply slop

The document has not taken into account any references to wildlife surveys in Shudrick Valley by appropriate organisations.

The town council were not transparent enough with the changes they made to the direction of growth for ilminster. Those who happened across the 'information' bus state that changes were not made evident. The bus itself and the other five opportunities to make comments on the plan are still a complete mystery to me and I live and shop regularly in the area! The brown site near horlicks has sat devoid of interest from industry for many years and would surely be put to good use as housing for peopl

The Ilminster Town Council favours a 'Relief Road' - relieving what exactly? In my view, both ends of the development ie Ditton Street/Townsend, would create more problems than it would solve. The old A303 is used as a relief road for the Ilminster bypass when closed due to an accident, so the thought of two sets of traffic lights on Bay Hill/Townsend and East Street/The Butts, as suggested would surely need serious consideration. The south-west of Ilminster is strategically better placed for ro
