The infrastructure in West Mersea and the quality of the main road to Colchester, are stretched to an unacceptable level now! If this proposal goes ahead a large increase in traffic will ensue (probably 600+ extra cars), not just during the summer period but all year through. It has become difficult to negotiate the illegally parked cars in the harbour area, due to the lack of suitable parking for the increased numbers of visitors and locals. This will get worse with an extra 300+ house holds. The evacuation of the island in emergency is already a worry if it should occur at high tide, and worse still at night. This scheme would only add to an almost impossible situation. It can already take 3 weeks to get a doctors appointment and the dentist is full.
