5.1 Policy SS1 of the Local Plan identifies that Yeovil is the primary focus for development in South Somerset. It goes on to identify that:

The following are Market Towns where provision will be made for housing, employment, shopping and other services that increase their self containment and enhance their roles as service centres:-

Primary Market Towns: Chard, Crewkerne, Ilminster and Wincanton

5.2 We agree with the identification of these market towns and the acknowledgement that Yeovil should be the primary focus for both employment and housing growth.
