LATE REPRESENTATION It has come to my notice that yet again another piece of precious land - agricultural this time - to be given up for 'boxes'. Surely we need to keep this land to farm or grow produce - has world weather been taken into consideration - look at wheat prices this year!! We need to grow our 'own' produce and not import so much - at huge expense - always assuming produce is always going to be there to import! I absolutely disagree with this plan - houses should be built on land

LATE REPRESENTATION I support the SSDC's decision to recommend that Ilminster grows south-eastwards. This would balance the housing around the town centre out. If housing were to expand south westwards to Herne Hill residents would be 20-30 minutes walk from the town centre (longer if small children). Expanding south eastwards would result in only a 10 minute walk to the town centre. The farmland at the base of Herne Hill is especially fertile and its loss to housing has negative implications

LATE REPRESENTATION I wish to support the SSDC's decision to recommend that Ilminster grows south-eastwards. I walk the footpaths between Canal Way and Herne Hill and am upset that they may be lost or moved to accommodate housing. The 'stop line' cutting is a treasure and access through leafy walkways is a delight. This plan has had full consultation and I thought was agreed?! Why a few now decide they don't want their views spoilt by housing development; so this should be moved to the othe

LATE REPRESENTATION I suggest that it suits Ilminster's new houses proposals best if they went 175 to the West and 175 to the East - or thereabouts. Run out of time!

I support SSDC's decision to recommend that Ilminster grows S E wards. The decision regarding council farms was made some time ago, endorsed by our local MP, especially to promote agricultural families and protect grade 1 farming land. Much was made of the historic "Stop Line Way'. The press/media contributed and we had visitors from far and wide to celebrate the event. The cycleway was created via government request to involve local residents to enjoy natural history and healthy living. These

In landscape terms, the proposed direction of housing growth on the north facing slope of the Shudrick valley seems a very bad choice. It would make better sense for any housing growth to be based on land off Canal Way, in the area of the new medical centre and nearer to proposed employment, rather than spoil the exceptionally attractive entrance to the town on its east side. It seems that the Highways Authority does not consider that a new road from Shudrick Lane to Townsend, offered with the S

POLICY FOR RESIDENTIAL ROAD / ESTATE ROAD / RELIEF ROAD FROM SHUDRICK LANE TO TOWNSEND UNSOUND: The first thing to establish is that even though it is not called an eastern relief road, the draft Local Plan evidence does include a residential road coming out at Townsend, in connection with the development in the direction for growth Shudrick Valley. It is obvious that a through road from Townsend to Shudrick Lane would very quickly become a relief road in everything but name; it will not be co

We are writing to object to the proposed plan to build 332 houses in the Sliudrick Valley. We are shocked that this sloping land of Special Landscape Value in the centre of Ilminster should be considered appropriate for development. If it is necessary to build even more houses in Ilininster, we consider that the second option in Canal Way would allow better access to major routes to centres of employment and further education freeing up the centre of Ilminster to traffic congestion

I wish to place on record my objections to the above mentioned Local Plan based on the following : No public consultation by either Town or District Councils has been given as to the changed preferred option for housing from Canal Way to Shudrick Valley. A specially commissioned survey by Atkins stated that a relief road was not necessary if the Plan goes ahead in Canal Way. This would not be the case in Shudrick Valley. It is my understanding that there was no Site Meeting before the decision

"Around the Herne Hill area is a great place for recreation activities, for the Ilminster people, and many many walking picnic groups, who do not live in Ilminster. I've always been concerned as to where all the cows will go, and hope there is no chance of a car park (on the Herne Hill fields).
