Land Provision 10. There is a misconception in the discussion starting at 4.65. The District Council does not provide land for industrial development or any other type of development. It can only facilitate development by commercial concerns. Targets 11. It is probably inevitable that there should be targets for the number of houses and amount of industrial estate to be provided. The numbers used are probably as good a guess as can be achieved at this stage. However, it seems essential

4. Housing and Employment Allocations The need for substantial housing and employment proposals in South Somerset, close in to the county boundary, is accepted, but the very proximity of such allocations to centres of population in Dorset demonstrates the need for closer working between the respective county and district authorities. Such working would accord with the Government's intention to introduce a general duty to cooperate between public authorities in order to further effective strategi

It is noted that the most significant increase in employment is at Yeovil. As Yeovil is the main employment centre serving most of the District Council area, this increase is fully supported. It is also noted that this increase exceeds the provision previously set out in RSS10 (which is shortly to be revoked). The Eco-town is anticipated to have 23 hectares of employment land which is again supported.

We wrote a similar letter a few years ago when it was proposed that Screwfix were planning to build a massive distribution centre on what is some of the best Grade 1 agricultural land in the area and we now discover that as well as housing there is yet another proposal for further commercial use for this land. Firstly there is more than adequate land set aside for industrial estates as the extension to Lynx which has been on-going for the past ten years has still not been fully taken up and ther

Any further provision of land for employment should be with a view to providing job opportunities for local people, rather than to encourage business growth as an end in itself, requiring net inward migration into the District

Policy SS5 refers to the provision of B1, B2 and B8 employment uses, with 13 hectares at Chard and 10.53 hectares and Crewkerne. Whilst these levels are not disputed, Policy SS5 does not take into account the PPS4 definition of employment uses which broadens the horizon of economic development uses beyond just B1, B2 and B8 uses. Policy SS5 does not refer to economic development in rural settlements. Whilst it may not be appropriate to allocate a specific quantum of economic development in rura

The conclusions set out in paragraphs 4.42-4.46 and 4.52 are therefore not based on a sound and even handed approach to national policy requirements, notably PPS5, or SEA requirements. The same considerations apply to the identification of need and distribution of employment land Policies SS3 SS4 and SS5 are therefore not sound.

I object to the 1.0 hectare of employment land for Martock. I also object to the wording "as a minimum" in the text. The wording should be deleted.

Hannick Homes and Developments Ltd accepts the need to provide employment opportunities where housing growth is anticipated and therefore fully supports Policy SS5 and notes that the requirement for Chard has, to a large extent, been achieved.
