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 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

It is unclear whether draft Policy CV3 is seeking contributions from strategic allocations alone or from all development within Chard. We therefore recommend that additional clarity is provided on this matter. In any event, the redevelopment of Snowdon Farm has the potential to fund and deliver early improvements to the Covent Junction and the Millfield Link subject to meeting the tests set out in Circular 05/2005.

Following on from our comments in relation to Policy CV1 it is noted that there is an expectation for a CIL tariff to be introduced to fund various off-site highway infrastructure to augment public funding. This will be applied to both Phases 1 and 2 i.e. pre and post 2026, of the Strategic Growth Area. However, it needs to be noted that these proposals on the eastern margins of the Town will also need to fund substantial infrastructure contributions. The overall cost of these, together with
