Representation 363 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Angela Saunders represented by Mrs Angela Saunders

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: I have lived on Mersea Island for 28 years and have seen the number of private houses increase substantially during that time.
Another 350 new houses with the associated increase in inhabitants and their vehicles is just not sustainable.
How will our doctors, dentist and school absorb this increase when they are already oversubscribed?
Some of our roads are already danger spots with the existing Island traffic let alone the addition of possibly another 700 vehicles.
Finally, should the need ever arise for inhabitants to have to evacuate the Island another 350 households would significantly add to what would be a logistic nightmare.
