Representation 1777 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Dr Richard Doyle

Support / Object: COMMENT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: I am not against the building of new houses on the proposed sites.
I trust that appropriate consideration will be given to the following;
1. Local infrastructure needs, including capacity of schools serving Mersea children, the medical practice, and the dental practice;
2. The suitability of local roads. East Road is bumpy to drive along. Dawes Lane is narrow, and prone to surface water puddling and road margin erosion.
3. Footway provision where people currently often walk in the road, e.g. along the length of Dawes Lane.
4. Planning Gains; I feel a greater contribution from the developer to local facilities is warranted.
