The community website for Pen Selwood
Many thanks to all who participated either on line or by paper. All the results and comments have been collated on line and can be found by clicking the link below. In 2 cases comments submitted by paper were too lengthy to be put on the on-line survey but were copied to each member of the Parish Council to be available with all the other information when they discussed the results at their meeting on January 10th.
At the same Parish Council meeting a response to a consultation by South Somerset District Council (SSDC) about revisions to the Local Plan was agreed and is attached via the second link below. The SSDC Local Plan is a lengthy policy statement about the District Council's intentions in respect of planning and development over the next 15-20 years and helps to protect an area from indiscriminate development. The availability of our questionnaire results and the comments in particular, helped inform our response which was specifically to the the questions about "rural settlements" which is how Penselwood is classified in planning terms.
