Representation 506 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Miss Joanne Gibbons

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: I am strongly against the proposed new development of 350 houses on Mersea.This number is way too much for the island's infrastructure to cope with ie inadequate health and education provision, no police presence and delayed access on and off the island via it's only road the strood. There could be an increase of 1000 people due to the build with more increases in the summer months with tourists.
Mersea is a special place loved by many and well documented on TV programmes and is known for it's small village life NOT large over populated town.
