Representation 1002 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Kevin O'Connor

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island
Representation: The Island is already over populated and any new housing will be detrimental to the facilities that exist.
Sewage works, roads, doctors, car parks and the school will not be able to cope.

Original submission

Mersea Island is already a congested place. the sewage works are at full capacity as are the Doctor's Surgery and School. Many of the roads are narrow and not designed for highly populated areas. At the present time the roads can be busy and the situation with the tide causes long tailbacks in both directions. It is difficult to park in the centre leading to hazardous on street parking. With only one road on and off the Island, should there be a major incident absolute chaos will ensue. Any increase to the number of houses will exacerbate the situation. These developments must not be allowed go ahead
