Local Community Plan

The Martock Local Community Plan prioritises the improvement of public facilities and services provided in Martock over the next 5 years.

The current Martock Community Plan was created from the last residents’ survey in 2010. Improvements that have been made in the last 4 years as a result of that survey include:

  • The refurbishment of the precinct

  • New signage for the business park

  • The use of a speed indicator on approach roads to the village

  • The establishment of Martock Film Nights

  • The new roundabout at the Water Street / Stoke Road junction

  • The Martock Job club

  • More community events – fireworks, street parties 

2. The Martock Neighbourhood Plan will be a plan for how future housing development and infrastructure for the village should be planned over the next 10 years. When complete this will have a legal standing, together with the South Somerset Local Plan, to guide the direction and type of development allowed under planning law.

A resident survey was distributed to every household in the Martock Parish in the Spring of 2017. The results of the survey can be downloaded at the base of the page.  They are feeding into the developing ne Community Plan and the Neighbourhood plan. Public consultation about the contents of these plans will be held this winter.
