Representation 509 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Stuart Scott

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: Mersea is losing its small town feel and I will consider moving away altogether if there is any more development like this on the island.

Original submission

I find the whole application horrific. Mersea has changed over the years and understandably developed as the need for housing has increased across the UK, with new houses being built right across the island. It has seen many changes since I moved there in 1974, but this latest proposal will ruin the island forever. There are massive issues with continuing this policy, and issues which are never really addressed. The local council need to stand up to the Borough Council and any other Gvt body and protect the way of life on the island. Mersea simply cannot take another 700 - 1000 people - there is no infrastructure to support it. The doctors surgery is packed, the school is full, the road to Colchester is always busy and the traffic will be a nightmare. The local councillors should fight this tooth and nail, or resign.
