Having lived on Mersea since 1964 and visiting family many times before that, I am aware of the many developments that have happened during this period. Areas of woods, gallops, fields, streams and even a boating lake now have houses built on them, doubling the size of the population in that time.
The popularity of the island as a tourist as increased dramatically in the last few years with the roads at virtual capacity.
The basic infrastructure has just managed to cope until now . Any further development will swamp this ..... the school, doctors etc. to the point that I cannot see how they can cope.
As an island we only have the one single carriageway road which is busy virtually 24 / 7 and as well as when the tide is over or when there are other hold ups the tail backs are longer than they have ever been at the moment. Further development can only make this worse.
Please consider these points and hopefully this development will be scrapped so that the uniqueness that we hang on to here can be maintained.
