Representation 116 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Donna Hadsley-Chaplin

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, West Mersea
Representation: The level of existing facilities can not support an 11% increase in housing which equates to maybe 1000 people. Mersea school is already bursting at the seams, the doctors surgery has recently shed 90 patients and it's move to new premises has stalled again. There is no police force on the island. Every summer day, the population swells by hundreds as people visit the beach. There is insufficient parking everywhere to deal with this. There is not coastguard or water bailiff.
