Traffic problems on entering or leaving
GP cannot cope
School not big enough
Parking now a big issue

Original submission

I strongly oppose this planning application on the grounds of the following
1 GP surgery is already to the limit
2 school not large enough for more children
3 there are already more than enough cars on this island.
4 there is now a serious parking problem already
5 no employment
6 drainage and drains not built for this amount of traffic.
7 traffic volume is already high with delivery vehicles
8 we already have our share of social housing
9 the road leading to Colchester and the A12 is already busy and getting worse every week
10 the road to Maldon and the A12 is an extremely dangerous road with drivers exceeding the speed limit
11 these 2 roads are the only way to leave the island
and will become a major problem
12 it seems no thought has gone into the fact that we have regular high tides
13 now planning has be put through for housing on the military land it will mean more transport for the people now living here
This island was not meant for a whole volume of people and transport.Every day it is getting very busy.
The mobile caravans have longer extensions of stay and has already increased people and traffic.
