Our client owns the car sales site to the south of Northover House near the centre of the town. We welcome the inclusion of this site within the defined Development Area for the town (as identified on Inset Map 5 of the Draft Core Strategy). This is entirely appropriate given that the site is previously developed land and forms part of the urban framework of the town. We acknowledge that the site is located in an area at risk from flooding. However, the site, as well as Northover House, bene

We support the proposals to locate housing and other development within the urban framework of the town and, in particular, closer to the town centre facilities such that non-car modes of accessing the town centre are more realistic and retention of any additional expenditure within the town centre thus more likely.

Support the identification of Ilchester as a Rural Centre to encourage self containment and provide support for existing and future services. The facilities (employment, retail, social and community) currently in the village (see list below) with no obvious vacancies (as at October 2010), suggest that the village is currently healthy and vibrant. It acts as a vital focal point for its resident population as well as its residential hinterland. Northern section of village Convenience store Commun

The recently revised and validated noise contours for RNAS Yeovilton as published in July 2010 in the District Council's document entitled 'Aircraft Noise Contours for the Royal Naval Air Station at Yeovilton' show a significant shrinkage in the contours as compared to the 1998 contour plan. Such a revision is to be welcomed as it places land at Hainbury Farm within NEC A and NEC B both of which are appropriate for future residential and employment development. The results of the Strategic Defe

The MOD supports the statements in paras 7.14 to 7.18 in connection with RNASYeovilton. "Further, the MOD would point out that, when the Council considers new noise contours for RNAS Yeovilton it recognises that the airfield has a fast jet runway and MOD can give no guarantee as to the type, number and frequency of aircraft movements now or in the future. As military operational airfields continue to reduce nationally the remaining airfields could see intensification of use and new aircraft.

In my opinion we are currently well privided for by local shops & services, but the biggest threats to them will be the traffic flow & shortage of parking. Many people who would stop & use these facilities do not because they can't park or can't safely enter & leave business premises by car. Considering these problems any increase in local housing will surley only exasperate this. My next concern would be that more development to the North of the village would only further split the community mo

One of the biggest failings in Town and Country planning for 50 years has been the lack of foresight for car parking, at home, at work and in peoples shopping habits. These days and for DECADES to come every house new and old has at least 2 cars for a period of time. Cars WILL NEVER GO AWAY. They will change on fuel used to propel them and there might be restructure areas, but people will NOT give up on cars and the council must always realise they this. Ilchester has insufficient car parkin

RE: ILCHESTER 7 GENERAL COMMENTS Thank you for the opportunity to view and discuss South Somerset Core Strategy plan to 2026. I live in Ilchester and fully support your plans. Most residents in Ilchester only see this plan as NIMBY's and do not understand that the growth of population THROUGHOUT the whole of the UK, whether it is covered by immigration, procreation or both is all part of the government plans to house these people. Every town, village and hamlet will HAVE to accommodate incre
