East Coker Parish Council Objections Against SSDC’s Local Plan

Yesterday, East Coker Parish Council submitted their Objections against South Somerset District Council’s Local Plan.  This Local Plan includes a Urban Extension to Yeovil of 2500 homes to be built predominantly within the Parish of East Coker.

ECPC’s submission consisted of three sections:

  • Section 1, ECPC objections against the Urban Extension;
  • Section 2, an independent assessment of SSDC’s sustainability appraisal, which was used to choose the location of the Urban Extension;
  • Section 3, several documents created by ECPC in response to past SSDC consultations which were felt to be still relevant.

Section 2 was carried out by Vertex Planning on behalf of the Parish Council to ensure that an independent and unbiased review of the Sustainability Appraisal was performed.

Copies of Sections 1 and 2 are posted here for your reference.

FLU VACCINATION

FLU VACCINATION: It is now time to think about plans for the winter.
Flu can be a real killer. It is easily transmitted and even people
with mild or no symptoms can still infect others. The vaccination is
the best protection that we have. Details of vaccination centres will soon be
available so please check with GP’s or local pharmacists.

James, or Jimmy as he preferred to be called

ECPC P7 jimmy web

It is with great sadness that we are writing this, our fellow Councillor James New passed away on Sunday 22nd October. We are all deeply saddened by his passing and our heart felt thoughts go out to his wife, Helen and their baby son, Tobias.

James, or Jimmy as he preferred to be called, was an active member of the Parish Council and served for many years. He will be dearly missed by the Parish Council and Parishioners.
