Representation 551 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Rex Ingram

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17c: Caravan Parks
Representation: Strongly object.
Since caravans can be used 10 months of year they are basically permanent homes. Therefore I object to further development due to:-
Local junior school full to capacity.
Only one road off island in event of flooding or nuclear attack/ accident. Bradwell only 2 miles away.
Local villages of East Mersea, the Wigborough's, Peldon, Abberton, Langenhoe, Fingringhoe all use West Mersea facilities, together with caravaners. These extra people are not considered in the Council's assessment that West Mersea's facilities are currently adequate.
No capacity at doctors or dentists, already over subscribed.
Nearest hospital 10 miles i.e. 20 miles round trip for emergency ambulance.
