Representation: 2 Proposal put forward to enhance the proposed development in Mersea considered improving the bus service by diverting the bus route along the promenade and Sea View Avenue, to improve visitors and residents easier access.

Improve the waterfront by backfilling the foreshore to the low water mark between the Dabchicks and the Dock side, to provide additional parking and boat storage, together with a riverside walk with seating.

Original submission

Having received notification of a planning meeting regarding proposed development off Dawes Lane and Cross Lane I would like to raise to following points which in my view would enhance any development:-

1. In view of the fact that there is also the proposal to increase the number of residents and Caravan Sites, have the Borough Council considered improving the Bus service by diverting the bus route along the promenade and Sea View Avenue, to give visitors and residents easier access.

2. In order to improve the waterfront in respect of parking and traffic caused by additional residents and visitors, have the Council considered backfilling the foreshore to the low water mark between say the Dabchicks and the Dock side, thus providing ample parking and boat storage, together with a riverside walk with seating.

3. Obviously there would be a cost, but this could be off set against any gain there is to be made in the large increase of revenue from rates and negotiation in the Land deal.
