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 increased population whether we like it or not. There are a number of observations I would make firstly dealing with Ilchester.

As you are fully aware Ilchester has a number of unusual circumstances, i.e. Flood Plain, Archaeology and busiest military airport in Europe. Your plan for 150+ houses at Taranto Hill is the perfect place for more housing.
