3. Vision and Strategic Objectives Without a more comprehensive approach towards the Historic Environment in this section, we believe this will undermine the credibility of this Core Strategy and the Tests for Soundness will not be met. Whilst there is a brief mention of the Conservation Areas and Listed Buildings of the District in the Vision, there is no mention of other heritage assets in this part.

The Vision for 2026 We welcome the vision for the rural areas of the District outlined in paragraph 3.9, and in particular the support for village development to provide jobs, facilities and affordable housing, as well as greater growth where sustainable

The CCE would emphasise the importance of providing a mix of market and affordable housing within villages, to meet the needs and demands of the whole community, and wish to see this reflected in the vision.

I do not support an Eco Town Urban Extension as SSDC has failed to make the case as to how it would add value to South Somerset. In fact it has the high potential to consume limited fiscal resources that would be better focussed elswhere for improved sustainability to more communities.

I support several parts of the vision for South Somerset particularly the vision for regeneration and diversification of economy outside Yeovil. This gives a better opportunity for people to be able to live in the market towns and rural communities without feeling that they have to move to Yeovil. Life/Work balance is important and having the opporunity to live in rural and semi rural settings adds value. Tailor you policies so that they send the right message across the district that number 1 p

We support the Vision of the emerging Core Strategy, which is to deliver a far more sustainable South Somerset, with self-sufficiency at the heart of the Plan (paragraph 3.3). A key component of the Vision in relation to Market Towns, including Chard is to deliver significant growth in order to promote greater self containment (currently at 61%), but most importantly to address physical constraints to growth. Whilst we strongly support the Vision to secure sustainable patterns of development, w

Cavanna Homes (South West) Limited and Chard Town Football Club fully support the Vision set out in paragraphs 3.3-3.10. In particular, they agree that the Market Towns, and in particular Chard, should be the focus for regeneration and additional growth.

Hannick Homes and Developments Ltd supports the vision for Chard set out at Paragraph 3.8. It is clear from the evidence contained in the South Somerset Settlement Role and Function Study of April 2009 that Chard is an appropriate location for significant growth having the second highest population; second highest level of self containment; second highest level of retail functions; a 1:1 ratio of jobs to workers; and a full range of services and facilities (with the exception of a cinema).

3.9 A viable agricultural and rural economy will have been supported through policies supporting village development for local provision of jobs, facilities and affordable housing and greater growth where a sustainable case can be made. Farm diversification and more diverse local employment opportunities and support for tourism and tourism accommodation and attractions will also support a better experience of rural living, as will the ability to live and work from home. Housing growth is not be
