Original submission

I am in the fortunate postion even at an advance age,to be able
Lto walk almost he entire lenth of East Road for my daily newspaper . This should be a pleasant experience. However Iam constantly surprised at the significantly increased volume of traffic which has occurred over the last decade that Ihave lived here .

Dawes Lane which never had parked cars on the road , now does so, which makes entering and leaving more difficult .

Here are o ther problems we have encounter ed .

a) We waited two years for large holes directly outaiQe our drivew ay, and elsewhere in the road , to be repaired.

b) Quite recently 11 e had e. considerable water leak in the road . AnglLan *:ater could not come for one month to repair this. It 1:1as repaired satisfac torily eventually .

c) When our house was built just over a decade ago , quite draconian building condit ons were placed on it (one su bosequently overturned on appeal). One would hope that this sam e criteria will be applied when deciding about these 350 homes .
d) There is a constaut unpleasant smell at the junctLon of wellhouse Green and at the corner by the Peldon Road .

e) The pavements in Seaview Road have roots of' trees comin throuLh*
f ) You have blithely increased caravan occupancy to 12 months .
It is with a sigh of relief wi.en the summer season" ends. However if these plana are approved , it .ill be "summer season (and I rnay say silly season) all the time.

I f thcoe above dom estic n.attors cannot be addressed efficiently now , now will it be if anotJer 350 homes are added to the mix?

You must consider these plan objectively, without any outside infulences from sources without first hand knowledge of the problems we have so far encountered and which can only increase if these plans are approve
