Representation 670 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Ian Bates

Support / Object: COMMENT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: Note present facilities are inadequate with present population which can double during summer with influx of visitors. Suggested number of houses will put between 350 to 500 extra cars on local roads which could not cope. Cannot see how you could evacuate up to 15,000 in an emergency - flood, nuclear (Bradwell) etc. Also no access from East Road. Remember Mersea Island is a "cul de sac" only one road on and off and which frequently floods.
