Representation 38 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Susan Tooley

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: Most Mersea residents appreciate the genuine need for more housing, but It is just not fair to dump Colchester overspill on this small island, already suffering greatly from a lack of infrastructure investment. The local roads are not wide enough for two vehicles to pass safely; many do not even have a white-line down the middle acknowledging the unsuitability of two-way traffic and the so-called main road onto the island has seen many accidents as a result. Another 500+ cars in and out of Dawes Lane is just laughable, CAN'T SQUEEZE A QUART INTO A PINT POT.
