Representation 401 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Geoffrey Slyfield

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: I strongly object to the planned development of 350 extra homes on Mersea Island. This would have a considerable adverse impact on the whole Mersea community. Local needs already outstrip capacity (e.g. at GP Surgery) to provide a decent service to residents. The existing poor road infrastructure will be overloaded with a likely 700+ extra vehicles (long traffic jams already occur at The Strood at high tides!). Construction traffic will also further damage existing badly maintained roads. More residents = more crime and we have already have no local police presence.
