Representation 449 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Kim Ball

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: Inadequate infrastructure e.g., school, dentist, doctors that are already overcrowded. Access to the island is via a causeway that floods at high tide. More homes is a major safety issue. Traffic at high tide is already overwhelming, particularly in summer months. If someone is taken seriously ill or injured during high tide will the air ambulance be able to come to the island? It is expensive to operate the air ambulance. How will we cope in the event of an emergency need to evacuate the island. Chinese are negotiating with the British government for Bradwell.
