I wish to object most strongly to the above Core Strategy and Sustainability Assessment on several grounds. 7. Sustainability Assessment - I believe that the SSDC's Assessments are incorrect, incomplete and unreliable and I believe that after further assessment they should be corrected. 8. I also object to this development going ahead as I believe that the appropriate Consultation under the regulations has not been carried out and I should be grateful if you could please advise me on whether a

Heritage Environment SSDC's draft Core Strategy and draft sustainability assessment do not accurately assess relative value and importance of the "preferred option" Keyford/East Coker sites from a heritage conservation point of view, completely omitting their value. The heritage of East Coker which includes the land proposed for development in the "preferred option" contains Grade 1 and Grade 2 listed buildings and their settings and context including but not limited to views, which are of equ

As SSDC has asked for public views on the DRAFT CORE STRATEGY AND DRAFT SUSTAINABILITY ASSESSMENT, I should like my objection to the proposals recorded and would offer my comments on discrete aspects as follows: PROPOSED KEYFORD DEVELOPMENT - I believe that several of the principal arguments given by SSDC for the preferred option of Keyford development as opposed to the Northern sites are flawed: TRAFFIC - Today, traffic congestion in and around Hendford is a problem, probably affecting the ec

I wish to object to the proposed extension on this site. On the following grounds:- SSDC's assessments are incorrect, unreliable; - it should correct, reassess, publish and re-consult... - Impact on the Heritage environment and increasing traffic congestion have not been properly assessed in the draft Sustainability Assessment, as is detailed in other posts. FURTHERMORE: - Biodiversity has not been properly studied and assessed for all the considered sites, so the sites cannot have been co

Thirdly, imbalance in SSDC's draft Sustainability Agreement. The environmental scorings in the draft Sustainability Agreement do not accurately reflect the disadvantage of using the Keyford Coker agricultural land. Nor do they reflect the comparative advantage of using the sites on the northern periphery of Yeovil, which are mainly Grade or unclassified agricultural land, more suitable for development. Fourthly, the IEA/ILA guidelines on landscape assessment require the aesthetic as well as

As presented, the Positive and Negatives weightings applied to the remaining options in the Core Strategy and Sustainability Appraisal documents appear inconsistent and selective. Negative considerations for Keyford/Barwick such as access to the A37, the additional load on the A30, and in particular Hendford Hill, are not given sufficient emphasis, but are consistent with SSDC view in the workshops that Hendford Hill is not currently subject to congestion. When considering the topography, positi

2. KEY OBJECTIONS TO CONSULTATION METHODOLOGY AND CONCLUSIONS 2.1 Objective 'Reduce poverty and social exclusion' The option appraisal indicates that the East Coker/ Keyford/ Barwick option would make considerably greater impact on reducing poverty than the other options. This conclusion is not supported by evidence and the Somerset Intelligence Network 24 June 2010 profile of Yeovil identified Yeovil East as the 'main priority' ward for South Somerset. Yeovil East is geographically distant fr

2. The sustainability appraisal for the Yeovil urban extension is fundamentally and hopelessly flawed (see my 34 detailed objections submitted on the website: IDs 236-244, 247-251, 253-256, 276, 278-286, 288-294). The most shameful aspects that I strongly object to are: a. the deliberate silence on the subject of developing on Grade 1 agricultural land. It is the best quality farmland we have and in relatively short supply. Ata time when the world is increasingly unable to feed its populati

SSDC's draft Core Strategy and draft Sustainability Assessment, regarding opposition to development site at Keyford/ East Coker/ Barwick. I wish to strongly object to the above Core Strategy and Sustainability Assessment on the following grounds: East Coker is an ancient agricultural community of great value, separate from Yeovil but also proud of its association with Yeovil and with Yeovil's modern industry and prosperity. The setting and context of East Coker is in grave danger.

The draft Core Strategy and draft Sustainability Assessment does not provide accurate information on the long term environmental impact and sustainability of the proposed site. - Biodiversity has not been properly studied and assessed for all the considered sites, so the sites cannot have been considered properly. - Dark skies are still extant in the sties that are part of the southern periphery of Yeovil, will be damaged and lost as part of the "preferred option".
