Representation 2128 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Jannie Gregory

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: As part of the Governmental drive for new homes across the country, the main area was providing homes for people taking jobs in the immediate area. Mersea Island is not a hub for new business nor building new business premises so new development of this nature is unwarranted as people would have to commute at least twenty minutes to work. This would mean an already busy road onto the island being massively over used. The infrastructure of schooling, policing, fire services, medical services, sewage,etc is already struggling to cope so would surely fail with many more people to service.
