Representation 2942 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr & Mrs Terry and Sally Knight

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: In our opinion, we feel the present infrastructure on the island, i .e. medical /educational requirements, would prove unsustainable for any additional influx. An additional burden on emergency services, already stretched at the present would be necessary (particularly bearing in mind the mature age of a high percentage of residents).

Need to consider the number of people living permanently in caravans/lodges on Mersea.

Need to consider sewage and environment

Original submission

We the undersigned would like to register our objections to the above planning application.

In our opinion, we feel the present infrastructure on the Island, i .e. medical /educational requirements, would prove unsustainable for any additional influx. An additional burden on emergency services, already stretched at the present would be necessary (particularly bearing in mind the mature age of a high percentage of residents). Consideration should also be taken into account of the extra amount of people residing in Mersea in caravans/lodges who can now retain occupancy for almost I2 months of the year. Concerns must also be raised regarding sewage/environmental aspects
