In connection with policies to address climate change the AONB regularly advises that all new build and extension development should include sufficient space to store waste and recyclable materials, suitably separated, for the increasingly extended periods between collections. We also recommend that within these new build and extension situations provision should be made for solar energy capture and utilisation. We would, therefore, ask you to include these two issues in your suite of EQ Policie

12 Environmental In line with the comments made under section 3 Vision and Objectives that recognises the cross cutting benefits of the natural environment it is disappointing to see that the environmental chapter is last.

3) Section 12 - Environmental Quality It is this section of the strategy that gives me most concern, primarily due to its incompleteness, and topic area omissions. My main concern is that there is no specific policy relating to the landscape, whether it be the conservation of protected landscapes, and registered historic parks and gardens; the protection of the countryside for its own sake; and the use of landscape characterisation, and historic landscape assessment, to inform and shape neces

The CS contains no statements or policy for the identification and protection of Tranquil Areas. It is likely this will form part of future implementation of the European Noise Directive and Noise Action Plans.

Water Quality We considers that aspects related to protection of water quality are not sufficiently developed within the document. The Environmental Quality section (2.28) only considers air quality and none of the Environmental Policies (EQ1-7) include any consideration of water quality aspects. Water quality aspects are an important consideration. Numerous private water supplies in the district rely on the maintenance good quality groundwater. This groundwater in turn provides important ba

Natural England welcome the opportunity to respond to this consultation as we see the Draft Core Strategy as a positive force for shaping the location and nature of new development and infrastructure and driving investment decisions. This in turn can protect and enhance the natural environment and deliver benefits for people and the natural environment together. Our comments are based on a number of key p

General comment It is understood that the Core Strategy should not repeat national planning policy however it is felt that it should show how national policy is interpreted and implemented at the local level. With this in mind it is felt that many of the sections are too general, or indeed very technical, and do not highlight the unique qualities of South Somerset such as the AONBs and other environmental assets.

In none of the environmental quality policies board is there any mention for encouraging: · The production of local produce and availability to minimise food miles, to help combat climate change · Minimisation of pollution and so therefore maintenance of high water quality · Protection of areas of intrinsic darkness · Protection of the highest quality and most versatile agricultural land.
