Representation 1784 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Barry Turner

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, West Mersea
Representation: There are 3580 registered Council Tax payers on West Mersea not the stated 3200. These figures do not take account of the additional permanent residents in mobile homes and lodges on the island. The proposed 350 additional dwellings has therefore already been significantly exceeded.
The availability of existing facilities and services on the island is already inadequate and further major growth would not be sustainable. Many tourists and holidaymakers also visit the island placing further pressure on the infrastructure.
