I believe this is a policy too far for Yeovil and South Somerset. I can't believe that members of the District Council is considering the destruction of the rural edge of Yeovil. It will create negative impact on the communities, using scarce resources to design and plan for a "futuristic town" that will have little in common with its urban and rural setting. I don't think people would dispute the need to improve cycling and walking provision, public transport and try and reduce reliance on cars

This comment relates to EQ1, EQ2 and 5.42. I note that a lot of importance is attached to energy efficiency, but find very little about design and planning for water conservation in this era of climate change. The presence or absence/shortage of water makes an enormous difference to lifestyle and the natural environment. I would like to see stronger statements in this strategy about the conservation and usage of water.
