Representation: We already suffer from lack of healthcare,schools and insufficient parking.Our roads are always busy as are our shops,especially at holiday times when our population doubles.It is already impossible to evacuate the Island safely in an emergency.At bank holidays it can take visitors more than 4hrs to leave the Island.Our quality of life is deteriorating through overcrowding and overdevelopment

Original submission

Insufficient healthcare to cope with present population.
Only one school on the Island and this is bursting at the seams.Traffic is a considerable problem with insufficient parking.I live on a bus route where the bus is constantly delayed due to parked cars.our population more than doubles at holiday periods.causing delays getting on and off the island especially during high tides and bank holidays and rush hour.It would be impossible to vacate the Island in a disaster.Our quality of life has deteriorated from the problems described above and this must apply to every person living on what is already a small overdeveloped Island.
