Representation 396 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr David Wood

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, West Mersea
Representation: Expanding the population by 12% plus with relatively little improvement in the road maintenance, improvement in widths East Road and Dawes Lane particularly will damage the local environment. Parking issues in the village centre and the limited supermarket and doctors surgery parking mean that all are incapable of supporting additional population on that scale. In the holiday season the road access leading to beaches and the main shops are often gridlocked. One way systems have to be considered and better traffic management at the Strood implemented BEFORE expansion.
