Representation 2949 on Preferred Options Local Plan by D & R Spezzia

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: Our concerns are as follows -

An already over-loaded doctor services.

Increased traffic, especially to the school, which sees parking in all the surrounding roads, resulting in difficulty in accessing Yorick Road, particularly at bus times. Also, not forgetting the increased traffic and population during the summer months with holiday visitors.

Finally, there is only one access road on and off this Island, surely this has a major bearing with the resulting population and traffic, should there ever need to have an emergency evacuation.

Original submission

We would like to submit our oppositions to the above proposal for 350 new homes on Mersea.

Our relevant concerns are as follows -

An already over-loaded doctor services, (so much so that 90 patients had to be removed from its list).

Increased traffic, especially to the school, which sees parking in all the surrounding roads, resulting in difficulty in accessing Yorick Road, particularly at bus times. Also, not forgetting the increased traffic and population during the summer months with holiday visitors.

Finally, there is only one access road on and off this Island, surely this has a major bearing with the resulting population and traffic, should there ever need to have an emergency evacuation.
