Whilst it is true that continued growth in car travel is not sustainable in terms of carbon emissions , the roots of this problem lie beyond the countryside. Cheap motoring costs, expensive pubic transport and a failure to develop effective, integrated transport networks has led to dispersed car travel everywhere - in urban as well as rural areas. The way forward is to develop more sustainable transport policies, rather than singling out rural development as especially unsustainable. Such issues

There is a real danger that the important messages contained within the transport chapter could get lost as the document is neither clear nor concise. It appears to repeat itself at various stages and there are confusing disjoints between the supporting text and the policies. Would a developer be able to pick up the document and find the information they require with ease? The document is very development focussed, with little or no mention of proposals for transport other than those which are

Would welcome further opportunities for involvement in the development of proposals, particularly in relation to traffic management and planning obligations. Traffic Study

I object to an ommission in the perceived future needs. The proposals throughout the plan reflect a growing 'younger' population in the town of Yeovil and the increase in 'elderly' residents in village and small town communities. The plan later referrs to 'modal shift' but makes no special provision/recognition for this fundemental shift in the requirements of the people concerned.

Ilminster has a bus to Taunton on old buses . for the young ones attending SCAT this cost over 7 pounds a day. Lack of transport to connect with trains and other buses. ie bus to Axminster the bust to Pool goes 5 before bus 30 arrives. Outlying villages have no transport or very little.

3. Transport, Accessibility and Modal Shift 3.1 Within the region it is recognised that Yeovil is not well placed geographically and is m--a-- predominately self-contained. It has poor rail infrastructure, which has an impact on travel times to destinations. There is little opportunity for major improvements that will add value;. Good connectivity to the Strategic Road Network is essential for Yeovil and it has benefit in this respect by four good points of access to the north, and west. 3.2 Fut

Para 10.7 ends "there are opportunities to improve sustainable links to rail stations and in particular the Yeovil stations." Please identify these opportunities and explain how they could be implemented, particularly where Yeovil Junction station is concerned. Traffic Study

We support the approach inherent in the Core Strategy, which seeks to reduce the need to travel and to promote sustainable travel choices. We acknowledge the challenge of reducing travel by car in South Somerset due to the rural nature of the District, reflected in a level of car ownership which is relatively very high. However, this reinforces the requirement for effective demand management, given the constraints already affecting transport infrastructure including the SRN. We are very encoura

Paragraph 10.7 We generally agree with the brief analysis of constraints given in paragraph 10.7 concerning rail. However the district appears to be reasonably well served by this mode and we suggest that opportunities for rail enhancements could be amplified in this section of the Core Strategy. This applies to both passenger and freight, and in this context we note that there are few references to freight transport in this section. This should be addressed with reference to encouraging alterna
