1. The site under consideration is within the Option 1 designation of the Draft Core Strategy Preferred Options, as shown in Inset Map 2 Castle Cary/Ansford. The site consists of land in the ownership of our clients, Donne Holdings and Tyre Renewals Ltd and further land in the ownership of Somerset County Council. It is anticipated that the County Council land would come forward in tandem with our clients' land, so facilitating delivery of relevant strategic growth requirements discussed below

Castle Cary / Ansford The preferred site is subject to surface water flooding. We would like to see a strategic approach to surface water for this site. Any development of this site should make sure the existing watercourse/ditch is preserved.

"6.13 The South Somerset Role and Function Study (April 2009) identifies Castle Cary/Ansford as performing an employment function and identified retail and community role for the town and surrounding area. Castle Cary/Ansford is designated a Market Town in this Core Strategy and such designation will enable the settlement to grow and continue to expand its identified role." Castle Cary is a market town, NOT because of any criteria the Core Strategy identifies, but because it is a Market Town by

Proposed housing/light industry developments in and around Cary I have read with some concern about the proposals for housing and light industrial units in the Cary area. I write as a former Chairman of a major property vehicle which has significant interests in the SouthWest e.g. Clarks Village. I am currently a consultant to some companies re: location. Not so long ago, we did a study for a company looking for a major site, the aim to build a science park in a suitable location. The objecti

Draft Core Strategy Market Towns - Vision and Proposals - Castle Cary/Ansford With reference to the above and to the preferred option we are writing in support of this proposal, in particular the land to the immediate west of Ansford which we have promoted in the pasty and made clear is available in the SHLAA. Given the proposed status of Castle Cary in the development hierarchy we fell the numbers proposed are about right, the location is correct and Castle Cary and Ansford should represent an

500 new houses does not seem to be a reasonable proposition for Cary if it is to keep it's country market town nature. Neither the schools(particularly the primary school) nor the road infrastructure will be able to cope properly with the increase in people and traffic. Greenbelt land is there for a reason, to stop overdevelopment. Cary is already in the situation of offering new 238 houses, who says we need more, certianly not the town council; people who actually live in Cary! There is already

If development takes place on Option 1 land, it should be sympathetic to the fact that this is in direct line with Glastonbury Tor and the iconic Somerset Levels landscape, The Crown Pet Foods Building seemed not to take this into account and has visually impaired the unique landscape bearing direct visual line with Glastonbury Tor.

Objection 6.10- 6.14 As I understand it, the district Council's proposal for Castle Cary and Ansford in relation to housing is that 500 homes could be built between now and 2026 and some 200 having already been identified on sites such as the BMI and former nursery sites.

It would be helpful if Paragraph 6.20 could be translated into plain English. What does "Comparison goods floorspace" and " Top up food shopping trips" mean exactly? The future of Castle Cary as a thriving small Market Town with an excellent variety of retailers can only be protected by ensuring that no large supermarket chain is allowed to build adjacent to the town. Large supermarkets are within easy reach by car or public transport in both Shepton Mallet and Wincanton. Re para 6.17 It

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.
