Is 500 new houses plus continued infill development the right amount for Somerton? Too many, Somerton is a small town and this is excessive growth

In conclusion I would like to restate that many of the potential problems I have mentioned would be minimalised by small numbers of houses being built attached to a greater number of villages over a wider area, IF INDEED THEY ARE REQUIRED.

Why does so much 'development' have to come to Yeovil?

I refer to the recent publication known as the Core Strategy, of the intention of developing a further 350 dwellings around Wincanton and in addition to the already approved 703 new build dwellings. PPS3 paragraph 38 states that there is a requirement for evidence of current and future need for development. I find that there is a decided lack of evidence; all that is offered are number of well worn platitudes. Why does Wincanton need 350 new dwellings? Where are the results of the survey of su

Now that the government has decided to decentralise planning and make it a local issue it now mean all aspects of planning are a local responsibility. The above covers homes, jobs, schools etc but it also means the provision of sufficient food supply. The planners are trying to turn Ilminster, which is a small market town into a large town. By allocation land next to the A3903 roundabout for industry and then in turn using prime farm land for housing, Every acre of farmland destroyed means sourc

I would like to strongly object to the Draft Core Strategy for Somerton relating to new housing provision in its current form for 2012-2026. Is 500 new houses plus continued infill development the right amount for Somerton? ยง Too many, Somerton is a small town and this is excessive growth
