Roads are inadequate for existing traffic without adding new housing. Both sites will add further traffic onto East Road and Dawes Lane with very dangerous junctions onto East Mersea Road and the Strood. Parking is a major problem and it is impossible to park in the town now. None of these developments will help local people. There are only minor employment opportunities on the island; new homeowners will need to commute into Colchester, adding more traffic to the roads. The council should await the effects of Brexit; more housing may not be needed if uncontrolled immigration is halted.
