Representation 674 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Caroline Waylen

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: West Mersea does not have a police presence on the island, it does not have a regular or reliable bus service, it does not have an old peoples home despite a high elderly population, The doctors surgery is overloaded .Water and sewage sevices are working at full capacity. I do not believe Mersea can withstand a development of the size proposed even with improved infrastructure especially at the alarming rate of coastal erosion due to higher tides and rising sea levels for which many insurance companys are already charging a premium for living on the island.
