Representation 1449 on Preferred Options Local Plan by MISA - Mersea Island Sports Association (Mr Matthew Townend)

Support / Object: COMMENT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: On behalf of Mersea island Sports Association I would like to highlight that if the plan went ahead the provision for sports would have to be increased. We are already suffering with inadequate facilities before an increase in population. Currently the Glebe facility is suffering from inadequate Car Parking, Pitch numbers and Mersea is one of the few villages of our size without any all weather playing surface. We would like to make it clear that just offering another grass field without any of the facilities mentioned above (Parking, Pitches, All Weather surface and Pitches) would be totally inappropriate.
