Do you consider the DPD is Legally Compliant? No
Do you consider the DPD is Sound? No
If you have responded that the DPD is unsound, Do you consider the DPD is unsound because it is:
  • Not Justified

    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.

What changes do you suggest to make the DPD legally compliant or sound? Proper democratic consultation
