South Somerset Local Plan Review 2016-2036 Preferred Options Consultation (Regulation 18) Introduction Duty to Co-operate and Statements of Common Ground Text Block

  • Comment ID: 1683
The duty to co-operate is of particular importance, given the relatively tight SSDC boundary along the eastern edge of Yeovil. Accordingly, land to the east that might otherwise be considered for the expansion of Yeovil actually falls within Dorset Council (DC). Given the substantial employment opportunities in Yeovil, and the existing degree of in-commuting, it must be assumed that a substantial number of employees in Yeovil actually reside in Dorset Council to the east.

Paragraphs 1.24 to 1.27 refer to the Duty to Cooperate and Statements of Common Ground. Paragraph 1.26 should refer to Somerset County Councils as their planning duties could impact upon the development (as minerals and waste authority there will be implications on the South Somerset Local Plan).
