Representation 464 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Shaun Mills

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: The proposed increase in houses on Mersea Island is unsustainable. At the present time the existing infrastructure cannot cope. The school, doctors, fire service & police (non-existent), parking & road network are not fit for purpose & any new development, let alone one the size of the proposed development adds further pressure to the services. This in turn affects all of the existing community, making it even harder to get children into school or an appointment at the doctors. Mersea Island is unique as it cannot encroach outwards & as such should be considered as being a special case.
