Dear Sir or Madam,
North Cadbury and Yarlington Parish Council as the Qualifying Body has prepared a Neighbourhood Development Plan, entitled the North Cadbury and Yarlington Parish Neighbourhood Plan for the period 2018 to 2033.
The Plan sets out a vision for the future and planning policies which will be used in the determination of planning applications.
Copies of the Neighbourhood Development Plan, supporting documentation and response forms are available on South Somerset District Council's (SSDC) website: https://www.southsomerset.gov.uk/your-council/your-council-plan-and-strategies/planning-policy/neighbourhood-planning/ under the North Cadbury and Yarlington drop down area.
If you are unable to access the documents online, hard copies will be available for inspection at North Cadbury Village Stores and Galhampton Country Store from 20th January 2022.
If you would like to see hard copies of the submitted documents at the District Council offices in Yeovil, this can be arranged if you contact email@example.com; or by ringing 01935 462462.
Please download the form and email your comments back to SSDC at firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to the Strategic Planning Team, South Somerset District Council, Brympton Way, Yeovil, Somerset BA20 2HT
The consultation runs from 20th January 2022 until midnight on 4th March 2022.

What have we been doing this month?
Reg 15 Submission Version
Draft Neighbourhood Plan.
As a response to the comments and suggestion gratefully received from residents on the Reg 14 Draft Neighbourhood Plan, we have made many changes and incorporated these into the Submission Reg 15 Draft Plan
This is now completed and will be presented to the Parish Council for approval on the 8th of December at North Cadbury Village Hall. If successful will then be submitted to SSDC Planning Authority for their consideration.
It may be helpful at this stage to highlight some of the changes from the Reg 14 Draft Plan:
In response to comments from local residents we have added in the Sustrans cycle route and a walking route around Yarlington as important local recreational trails.
In response to comments from Natural England we have included more detail on the wetlands (or similar) requirements needed for any new residential to address the problems of waste water into the Somerset Levels and Moors Ramsar Site.
In response to concerns from local residents that the development next to Brookhampton would ‘creep’ further up Cary Road, we have included a Green Gap to stop any further development in the remaining area.
In response to concerns from local residents about the impact of the sites on local wildlife, the hedgerows and also flooding risk to other properties, we have clarified measures that will make sure that there will be no increase in run-off, and that the roadside hedgerows should be retained within the design.
In response to the Conservation Officer comments, the barns at Hill Farm and North Town would be retained and converted rather than including an option to allow their replacement, because they are of local historic interest.
There were objections to the two main site allocations, further checks were undertaken and where possible changes have been made to the plan to mitigate the concerns.
OTHER KEY REPORTS:
Contains details of the persons and bodies who were consulted about the plan, explains how they were consulted, summarises the key issues and concerns raised and describes how these issues have been addressed where practical and relevant.
When a neighbourhood plan is submitted to the LPA it needs to be accompanied by a statement which explains how the plan meets the legal requirements in terms of its contents and coverage, has regard to national policy and strategic policies in the development plan for the area and will contribute to the achievement of sustainable development.
Three further documents (whose recommendations have been incorporated) address the sustainability issues of the plan:
A significant range of other supporting documents can be found by clicking the INFORMATION and DOCUMENTS TAB at the top of this page then go to the “Supporting Documentation" - "Evidence Section”

Finally but importantly
There is a lot to read here, so please try and attend the Parish Council meeting on the
8th of December in North Cadbury Village Hall

Options Consultation Headlines
We promised to give you feedback before Christmas on the recent questionnaire. The headlines are below but we will follow this up with more detailed analysis in the New Year. Once again thank you to all who took the time to respond it was magnificent
How many people responded?
We had just over 460 people participating (taking into account whether responses were made individually or from households).
The approximate breakdown by area was:
North Cadbury 50%
We had a good response rate from each settlement, which has provided a good basis for our analysis
Thought to be good or very good by about 4 out of 5 respondents with some further suggestions made that we will need to consider, such as placing more emphasis on improved facilities, and retention of the character of the area
Approach on Housing Mix, Employment and Facilities
Over 90% felt the findings were about right, not surprisingly however we received over 100 added comments particularly on Housing and certain facilities issues
Sites for Housing and Employment
A total of 8 sites were clearly supported by residents with another 5 locations having a borderline level of response. 7 of the sites were subject to outright rejection, with what could be described as an overwhelming level of opposition.
We received a large number of responses to these questions which we will carefully consider. We have also had further contacts from landowners about their site options and possible changes, that we also need to consider.
Once we have done this, our next step will be to discuss the possible site choices with SSDC in the New Year
Local Green Spaces and Important Views
Green Spaces and Views are clearly very important to residents of the Parish with at least 80%, and sometimes nearly 100% of people saying these were very important. We had a large number of comments and suggestions to look through, and from this have identified at least 4 more locations to assess as local green spaces (we will try to contact the landowners of these sites), and at least 5 more views to consider
Walking, Cycling & Riding
We sought to understand how well footpaths, bridleways, routes and cycleways were used. We have more than enough evidence to show that the routes we had identified were well used. As this was quite a high priority from the household survey we conducted in February we also wanted to know if you had any suggestions on new routes and where they might run. We had over 70 comments/suggestions which we are now sifting through!
