-350 houses will mean around 700 extra cars. No local employment and therefore a huge increase of traffic on and off island with only ONE route, which is regularly cut off by the tide (and traffic accidents). There is no alternative route!
There are regularly queues from Langenhoe to the Strood at high tide.
-The access for both sites open onto East Road within a few metres of each other. This road is narrow and paved only on one side; buses and lorries have difficulty passing.
-I note that there is 'an access' via Brierly Paddocks which suggests there may be a second - but the traffic would still have to pass through East Road.
-Dawes Lane is an extremely narrow, bumpy lane which cannot be used by heavy vehicles - it is a squeeze for small vehicles to pass.
-The doctors' surgery has recently told 90 patients that they will have to move surgery as it cannot cope with the numbers. How will the resources cope with another 1000 patients?
- Those living on caravan sites 11 months of the year are not included in population figures.
- Water pressure is low already
- No room at the school for the influx of children
Why build so many houses in such an isolated area? It is an ISLAND with ONE road - surely it would make sense to build somewhere with good access!!?
