Representation 680 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Michael Banks

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: There are currently approximately 7,530 people living on Mersea at the moment: in addition to this number, there are several caravan parks which are accommodating people yearly. Therefore, a further increase in the population density would severely impact local services such as the doctors, the dentists and the school, just to mention a few! The Island already needs investment without any further homes being built. Overall, the plan for building 350 homes on Mersea would only put strain upon much needed services.
