Draft Core Strategy (incorporating Preferred Options) Market Towns - Visions and Proposals Chard What will the Core Strategy Deliver? Chard Growth Area Chard Growth Area

I am concerned with losing long established names of areas i.e. Holbear, Forton Road. This name is attached to9 the lane in this area and is called Holbear. This lane is Holbear lane. The area on both sides of the road, Forton Road, is the area Holbear. I know this because I grew up in this area when it was completely separate from the town. Why has the name been taken away? Please don't take away names of local areas in the new developments. This is important to all Chardians.

Fear for development over Crowshute and Snowden park recreational area, now just within my reach (an octogenarian country lover) leaving no accessible green area. Concern, having moved from Purtington to Boden Street in October 1983 and already having my view to the west blocked by the solid great brick wall of Lidl's store, that the area beyond my garden to the east is to be developed in years hence, so could block those views of Windwhistle also.

It is noted that this Policy proposes fairly substantial growth at Chard (in a scenario between scenarios 3 and 4) and subsumes the existing Local Plan key site within it. Given the need to identify a further 3,000 dwellings to meet the latest evidential base in the area outside Yeovil, we support this proposal, including the provision of more employment land (19 hectares). However, the difficulties in co-ordinating the provision of the Eastern Link Road associated with the Key Site in the pre

8.11 Policy CV1 Chard Growth Area: Given that the Chard Growth Area has not been delivered through successive Development Plan Documents, it should not be relied upon as a source of housing supply over the Core Strategy plan period.

CV1 Chard Growth Area We support the Policy in so far as we agree that land at Chard should be allocated for strategic growth. However, we consider that the level of development proposed in the town under Preferred Option 3 is too high, and a reduced and reconfigured Chard Growth Option 2 is a more appropriate level of growth for the town. Within Option 2, some of the proposed land allocations are illogical. A block of development between the Forton Road and the disused railway appears incong

It is clear from the Sustainability Appraisal Report that „Option 3: eastern growth area full build out? (around 2700 dwellings) scores best in sustainability terms as it provides a scale of growth that will enable Chard to achieve and maximise its offer of employment, housing, retail and associated amenities, whilst not re-introducing undue congestion within the internal road network of the town. The benefits of this option include: - Permeability and connectivity of movements within the town

Thank you for seeking our views on the above document. We have two main interests in the plan: 1. Firstly, the potential impacts of draft policies on biodiversity, especially waterbirds which use the Somerset levels and moors Special Protection Areas (SPA) and Ramsar site; 2. Secondly, the potential for the RSPB with others to help deliver policies on public access to the countryside, rural tourism and regeneration, education and the health and wellbeing of the people of South Somerset, through

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

We object to Policy CV1 and the resulting strategy for growth. The preferred growth option prepared by LDA Design does not logically flow from the Vision and objectives of the emerging Core Strategy. The proposed growth option seeks the development of peripheral unsustainable sites ahead of more sustainable sites. Most importantly, the proposed growth option has disregarded the benefits of allocating Land at Snowdon Farm which is arguably the most sustainably located in Chard. We consider that
