Based on the preferred strategy of Growth Option 3, Land at Snowdon Farm would not come forward until after the Plan period. However, Land at Snowdon Farm is immediately available and deliverable within the first five years of the Plan. The site is located within easy walking distance of the town centre and has excellent pedestrian links to all services and facilities. The site could also contribute towards infrastructure at key junctions subject to meeting the Planning Obligations tests. We con

I would like to object to your option 4 for Chard. I am against any further developement and most definately not the vistas of North and West Chard. The north in particular has staturated local roads. 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

In relation to the proposals for the development of north Chard, on the Cuttifords Door/Combe St Nicholas Side,(option 4)I strongly object the proposals put forward and to any housing being built in this area. The roads in and around this area are not adequate for large volumes of traffic passing through and there is no way of improving this due to existing buildings in existance. This would see a significant increase in traffic congestion in the area. I am all for the regeneration of the town i

In relation to the CORE STRATEGY for North Chard bordering CUTTIFORDS DOOR, I strongly object to any housing being built in this area. This land should be retained for agriculture and nothing else. The hedgerow backing Dening Close,Tudor Court and houses on the Redstart Estate should be the Northen end of Chard and thus retained as this. Any development at this height would infringe on CUTTIFORDS DOOR and COOMBE St. NICHOLAS. As for the hedgerow, this supports plenty of wildlife ie. Badgers (Pro

I would like to object to option 4 , I live at Redstart Road which has a lovely greenbelt area where wildlife is at it's abundance. We have Badgers,Birds many kinds nest in the area, squirrels and many other animals come into our gardens,which is a pleasure to see.People walk their dogs in the fields and we have a lovely bowling green. Residents of Restart have problems using the road especially at school term times,as there is too much traffic congestion and this will only add to it.Glynswood i

I wish to support the Preferred Option 3, whilst firmly rejecting Option 4. Option 3 is a logical development of the present transport and infrastructure strategies, whilst not overburdening the Town with over development that is alien to the culture of a Market Town. Option 4 would create increased traffic to the narrow Combe Street and create safety hazards around the access roads to Holyrood Acadamy and Cresta leisure Centre. This in turn would increase the use of Elizabeth way as a 'rat run
