Comment

We note that Policy YV5 intends to maintain an area of land to the west of Yeovil wherein only development that can be “justified as causing no hazard to the operational needs of [the] aerodrome” will be permitted. Para 5.61 refer to this a “built development” being “precluded”.

What changes do you suggest to make the DPD legally compliant or sound? Clarification is sought as to what is or is not permitted within such an area. For example, would a Park and Ride facility, for which there is an identified need within Yeovil, be a suitable use in this location.
If your representation is seeking a change, do you consider it necessary to participate at the oral part of the examination? Yes
If you wish to participate at the oral part of the examination, please outline why you consider this to be necessary: Due to significant policy issues involved.
