Market Towns - Visions and Proposals, Castle Cary/Ansford It is my opinion that any future development should have the pre-condition that a route be found to take congestion and large HGV's out of the town centre, and also the north-south route going through Ansford. The current traffic level, especially HGV's is dangerous and detracts from the quality of life/well being of adjacent residents. The redevelopment of Cumnock Crescent which will presumably attract families is a case in point.

As the Council will be aware, Castle Cary and Ansford have already sustained much housing development, from the 1970's onwards, chiefly of starter homes. This has resulted in not inconsiderable traffic problems, since the town's roads were not built to accommodate such volumes. Indeed, the town pet shop has recently moved to an out-of-town retail park, to the disappointment of customers unable to reach the new venue, the move being hastened by the attentions of traffic wardens and the proximity

Object 6.17 The existing residue of land for employment was sold off to Crown Petfoods, apparently because there was not need for land for businesses as there was "no call for the land". If this is the case why does Castle Cary need another 3 hectares of land? Extra land was bought by the District council supposedly for employment land after planning permission was granted to Crown Petfoods. Object 6.10 The 238 new homes already allocated are presumably on the site planned on Cumnock Road. Thes

I cannot see by building more houses will improve Cary. Will weekenders join the local life and spending money locally. If you charge at the carpark we will have more congestion in Cary which will cause more chaos and not improve life for older people who come and shop from the villages. It is very difficult crossing roads in Cary for the old as it is. Please do not spoil Cary such a nice friendly town.

The same logic applies to current infrastructure issues (Parking, transport etc)

More housing of a mixed nature is fine. But where it is built the provision for schools, health services, the young (and the elderly) should be increased. Traffic is a public education challenge. New homes should have parking provision.
