Draft Core Strategy (incorporating Preferred Options) Yeovil - Vision and Proposals What will the Core Strategy Deliver? Appropriate Scale of Growth Appropriate Scale of Growth

HOUSING DEMAND AND SUPPLY The Numbers Are Wrong and must be revised to incorporate recent data that show much lower than expected population growth than projected. Demand and unaffordability is in the rural areas by SSDC's own research, not in Yeovil. Regeneration of central Yeovil should be the only urban priority. We request you to allow us to make further comment after publication of the new Baker Associates report and the 2011 Census. We expressly reserve all of our rights.

From other areas of this document it would appear that SSDC is planning for more employment land in order to justify the number of houses it mistakenly thinks it needs to provide. Look CLOSELY AGAIN at the figures (as suggested by other contributer) as it seems that SSDC has not done the sums correctly! This is no small error in calculation!!

I am writing to object to the proposed 3700 house 'Yeovil Urban Extension' at East Coker / Keyford. It is disappointing that SSDC seems to be ignoring the wishes of the local community. There has been no 'local movement' pressing for this development. The only people in favour of this plan would appear to be the builders and the land owner, both of whom would benefit hugely in financial terms. Once again short term financial gain is being put in front of the wider need to conserve what makes

8200 new dwellings are proposed for Yeovil. Some will house local people as the average household size falls through divorce, late marriage etc. But this still implies at least 6000 homes to be occupied by people from outside - maybe 13000 people. Where are these coming from? I can believe that three groups might wish to come to Yeovil - people living in areas of high unemployment, economic immigrants from outside the UK, and perhaps people whose high inner-city rents will not in future be co

IFew people outside of a few Council insiders will have a clue as to what is meant by 'maintain Yeovil's role and function as a strategically significant town'. This in itself is not a justification for controversial and unparalleled growth. The justification hops without any logical link from ' with this scale of growth looking unrealistic' (referring to a previous plan) to 'a significant scale of growth.. is required to service and enable the Yeovil economy to grow'. Are we to embark on this

Have the projections for housing requirements across the region taken account of the current level of unoccupied housing (both social and private) within the region? What is the current level? Are there any plans to sort this problem out first before adding to the overall amount of properties? Given the wider economic situation are any of these figures (probably put together pre-Autumn 2008) now relevant?

THE FIGURES ARE QUESTIONABLE AND BUILT ON FORECASTS OF GROWTH WHEN THE UK WAS A POPULAR LOCATION TO COME TO WORK. ALL THAT HAS CHANGED ANF IMMIGRATION IS CHANGING TO EMIGRATION.

I write to object, in the strongest possible terms, to you proposals to build 3,700 new homes to the south, south-west and south-east of Yeovil. I cannot believe that there is a need for the huge number of 3,700 homes, implying about 10,000 people needing extra accommodation in Yeovil and I have not seen any evidence to this effect. Additionally, there is no longer a government requirements to build a specific number of new dwellings. I seriously fear for the villages of West Coker or East Cok

We are writing to express out strong opposition and dislike of the proposal for such an extensive and intrusive development which the draft core strategy has recently detailed. Our reasons for opposing these proposals can be summarised as follows:- 1. It is a truly massive development which will radically and adversely affect the area and surrounding villages. 2. We find it difficult to believe that such as massive increase in the number of houses and additional business facilities is at all ne

The total housing number requirement is questionable and not supported by a coherent, factual rationale especially as there are no figures for additional housing provision in rural settlements beyond commitment to 2009 (2006-2009)
