Representation 1717 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Daniel Brooke

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: The proposed additional 350 dwellings will significantly increase the traffic. 2 cars per household would be a reasonable estimation leading to an additional 700 cars on the island. Assuming each car leaves the island once a day this is an additional 1400 car journeys a day, damaging the infrastructure and environment. In the area of the glebe there are two different lichens growing currently indicating the air quality for the area is good. An additional 1400 car journeys will damage this eco system and effect the site of special scientific interest.
