Representation 175 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr. William Sunnucks

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17c: Caravan Parks
Representation: As drafted the plan will allow further expansion of the caravan sites. A firm ban on further growth is needed - it will adversely impact the image of Mersea as a place to live or holiday, it will further despoil the view of the island from the sea, and it will lead to unsustainable peak season usage of the roads.

Modest development (<10 dwellings) to allow East Mersea to grow as a village should be permitted close to community facilities - the pub, the shop, the village hall or the church.
