I worked on Mersea Island for 15 years as a community nurse and I have also lived here for 20 years. During this time I have seen the strain just holiday makers put on our limited services, a population increase resulting from 350 houses would be too much. We have a high proportion of elderly residence who require a lot of medical care .
If houses are to be built then the infrastructure should be improved before any new build as well as increasing the both medical and educational facilities. Mersea is surrounded by water which limits outward expansion.
