Representation 462 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Sarah Hempstead

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: I object to the proposals for 350 new homes on Mersea. I do not believe there is the appropriate infrastructure to support the families that these homes will bring. The doctors surgery is already full, and have recently turned people away, and the school already has large intakes of pupils each year. There is no mention of money to make these 2 facilities bigger to support the additional people. Added in the extra tourist trade we already have from the caravan park, the island is already bursting.
