Representation 421 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Terri Davis

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: The infrastructure and local school cannot accommodate the extra bodies from the proposed housing.
East Mersea is a part of the Island but is treated as an "Other Village"!!!! Maybe because it's home to most of the councillors?

Original submission

Having worked at the local school, I can honestly say there is not enough room to accommodate further pupils from the proposed houses. The roads surrounding Mersea are also under pressure already, without the additional housing. The buses used for secondary school are inadequate at present and cause their own problems with congestion. The council still ignore the fact that caravan owners are living permanently at Coopers Beach. I am certain of this as I used to own a caravan there and the residents are still living there and sending their children to the local school. This is not taken into account when planning the additional homes.
