Representation 135 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Christopher Matthews

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: To put more housing will result in an island melt down and will result in events that will result in government intervention.

It should be noted that the evacuation of the island in the event of a nuclear incident has to be completed within a given time period, even if low level material is handled,refer gov directive.

Original submission

The proposed development is unsound and the facts and interested parties surrounding the 350 dwellings should be examined by a separate government department at all stages. The island is currently under resourced in the following areas, medical, sewage,police,fire, schools, or transport infrastructure ( we have major holes in our roads that go un repaired after many months ) any additional loading be it cars or building plant will send the island into melt down. The is an island which is a place of beauty and therefore we have tourists they are a source of revenue for our business, however they do put a very high strain on our current infer structure.
