Having recently moved to Mersea Island in April 2016 it is clear that there seems to be a strain on the current infrastructure with the current inhabitant on Mersea Island. Trying to register for a doctors, dentist and looking at the only school available has been a real challenge.On top of this getting on and off the island, particularly during the summer weekends has also been a real challenge with all of the visitors to the beach and sailing areas and parking is to put it bluntly... Limited! So to propose increasing the number of inhabitants...by building 350 more houses (around 700 - 1000 more people) would make living on the island congested and even more challenging than it already is.
I cannot see why building so many houses in a small area with only one access road on and off the island, providing no emergecy services (except a fire station) could even be considered.
I totally object to the proposal of building so many houses on the island, which will change it from a pleasant but mildly challenging area to live, to an overcrowded under resourced island!
