I am very unhappy about the fact that a new road is going to be put through the Chard reservoir and therefore I am objecting got the proposal. We have a great asset for Chard in a lovely green area, for the use of various groups of people such as dog walkers, moths with children and the elderly just for a walk. I use the land frequently and the speed of traffic using the lane is a concern now. My other concern is that the replanning of the houses that were put forward and successfully rejecte

Surely the best and only option is option 3? I always understood that this was to come forward as part of your last plan? Expansion of Chard to the East is the only option giving access to the A30 and A358 without sending additional traffic through the town. Traffic lights at the centre of town are already solid as is victoria avenue. Residential areas of Glyswoods would become dangerous rat runs with any other option but 3. Further if this really is about developing Chard the major employment c

It is noted from Para 6.56 the Council has applied for grant aid to assist in the provision of the Millfield Link as a pre-requisite for permitting further major development in the town. Given the considerable public sector funding difficulties for the Homes & Community Agency and other agencies, it seems unlikely that this "pump priming" will be forthcoming. Consequently there is a clear need to adopt more realistic objectives with a lesser amount of development and less infrastructure costs

The phasing of development in Chard subject to Policy CV2 can be achieved by the Core Strategy regardless of whether housing delivery is linked to a masterplan or not. The latter also applies to obligations sought through Policy CV3.

The traffic modelling in the Chard Regeneration Framework Strategic Transport Appraisal Report demonstrates that, at present the main constraint on further development in Chard is at the Convent Signals, which provides an effective cap of up to 200 dwellings without improvements at the junction. The Strategic Transport Appraisal Report also considers that in the short term the installation of MOVA facilities at the junction could improve the current operational performance by up to 8% during pea

Owing to its role and function, provision is made in draft Policy SS4 for 2,191 dwellings in Chard. Of this provision, 1,700 dwellings can be attributed to strategic allocations (78%) which are intended to address the physical constraints to growth. A key component of deliverability of the strategic allocations is the development of the Millfield Link, which according to the Implementation Plan (LDA Design) needs to be built within 2-3 years to ensure that growth is not curtailed. The estimated

These policies are considered to be unrealistic and over ambitious. They require infrastructure investment on a scale which is unlikely to be forthcoming. The population of Chard has grown substantially but there is no reason to believe such a trend can or should continue indefinitely. In industrial terms Chard has maintained a fine record of success in manufacturing, at a time when manufacturing industry has declined nationally. Nonetheless there have been in recent years sone notable losses of

It is acknowledged that the growth and regeneration objectives for Chard are complex and require a phased approach. Whilst detailed phasing is set out in the Chard Regeneration Framework Implementation Plan, no information is provided on viability of the proposals. It is noted that reference is made to the need for public sector funding to assist the regeneration proposals. Given the recent announcement from the Coalition Government regarding the reduction in the availability of public sector s

CV2 Chard Phasing We have lodged significant objection to the choice of Growth Option 3 under Policy CV1, and have suggested Growth Option 2 to be more appropriate. We therefore object to Policy CV2 because it details the phasing for Growth Option 3 which we wish to see replaced with growth Option 2.

The 4 relevant policies within the Chard Section of the CS - Policies CV1, CV2, CV3 & CV4 - are supported by Morrish Builders. The approach to the Growth Area, Phasing, Obligations and Modal Shift, respectively, are reasonable. They bring together the appropriate aspirations for the town and should be achievable within the strategic timeframe. The Company will play its part in the delivery of development to accord with these policies and an early start is entirely practicable. Deliverability
