Improvements to the town centre services and the safeguard of local shopping are documented, this is essential but very difficult to provide. The medical centre is in the perfect position and needs to be extended on the same or close-by sites. The District Councillors must press the Health Authority to act on this matter. Our local shops will only sufvive if the free parking is ring-fenced for shoppers only.

Somerton will provide a fair share of land for new housing with special identification for homes for local people. The key social need to keep families within a community has been identified and must be a priority. However, we submit that the allocation of lands to the North and South of the town are unacceptable. The topography is unsuitable, the visual impact would be a disaster and true need is not accepted.

Infrastructure is woefully inadequate, ie: § schools are at near capacity § town centre parking is often full § medical surgery is too small. Some questions are: § How to achieve affordable housing while increasing infrastructure standards throughout the community? § How to develop the community without harming the economic viability of the town centre. Are moor houses good for the town centre shops because they generate more trade, or are they bad because more cars reduce parking availability

1. Firstly, Somerton will lose for good the unique atmosphere of small quiet town what I think is very precious and what people deserve to have. 2. Secondly, the schools don't have the capacity. The pupils from different level already need to share the same class room. 3. Thirdly it will cause massive problems with traffic jam and carbon footprint as the roads are very narrow and there is not a lot of carparking. Especially in option 2 as the housing estate will be furthest away from the town ce
