3.8 Whilst Sections 2 and 3 of the Core Strategy identify a number of key issues and challenges facing the District, including traffic congestion within the middle of Yeovil and the need for more integrated and sustainable public transport, there is no reference made to how these issues will be addressed. As such, the vision fails to demonstrate the genuine progressive opportunity that exists at the town and the role strategic development can make in facilitating these improvements.

re. 5.8 It is very important that people who live in towns can access and enjoy the countryside - for health and wellbeing and a general sense of belonging to the area they live in. I am concerned that the proposed extension to the south of Yeovil will swallow up a lot of well-used rural public footpaths.

The size and function of Yeovil's town centre, particularly the comparison retail offer, needs to be clarified. At the moment the approach is to "back all horses" preventing focus and themes developing. The total desired retail footplate can will be defined, together with spatial relationships to car parks, night time economy and services, various hospitality sectors, housing and leisure. Thought needs to be given to the mix which will provide a destination, a through the day retail demand (foot

The vision for Yeovil should be to improve and develop what Yeovil has, not to destroy it by inappropriate development. The vision should be part of a holistic vision of South Somerset to which Yeovil has its place within its rural setting. It should do all it can to protect its rural edge for future generations.
