Representation 1313 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Miss Diane Bishop

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: Mersea Island does not have the infrastructure to cope with an additional 350 houses. The school is at maximum capacity and several years are already being taught in mixed year classes. The doctors surgery would also have to cope with potentially an additional1000 people! Traffic on the island is extremely busy and with only one route on and off the island this will become more of a problem with the amount of additional cars that would come with 350 houses. Mersea island is a unique place and the additional houses will change the landscape and the feel of this community.
