Representation 223 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Zoe Rogers

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: As a tidal island with one road on and off the island this significant increase in population and traffic would put intolerable strain on the already overwhelmed inferstructure. The proposed access routes would be unable to cope along with the health care and education services on the island. The sheer scale of the proposed number of houses is utterly inappropriate for the nature of the environment. I am also concerned about the issue of being able to leave the island in an emergency if required - its wonderfully unique access route suddenly becoming a congested danger.
