Representation 1082 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Graham Farley

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: Bradwell is available for new nuclear which requires an evacuation plan for Mersea. Increased housing will further complicate any such plan.
This can be seen with refused planning applications at Bradwell.
Increasing the caravan parks opening times will remove the transient element and as such caravan residents will be added to the total population,
Any major increases to population (as proposed) on the Island have the potential in the holiday season to overwhelm the already crowded road structure which will eventually lead to a worst case emergency scenario as emergency vehicles are prevented from getting to a fire, car crash or medical emergency.
