Draft Core Strategy (incorporating Preferred Options)

Local District Centres

9.102 New District or Local Centres (as defined in Annex B to PPS4) to serve proposed new development areas should compliment rather than compete with the retail facilities in the relevant strategic centre. This consideration is particularly relevant in relation to local centre facilities to be planned in association with the Urban Extension for Yeovil, within existing major strategic site development proposals currently with consent, and with the centres associated with the major development at Chard.

Policy EP15 District and Local Centres
 

Development of the District Centre and Local Centres associated with the Yeovil urban extension and existing major development proposals currently with consent, and the Local Centres associated with development at Chard should be of a scale and nature to meet local needs of the developments within which they will be located but not such that they adversely affect the viability and vitality of Yeovil and Chard town centres.
