Representation 8 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr John Tring

Representation: Impact to roads, schools and medical centers has to be accounted for and improved first. The area is over congested with traffic, and roads are in a poor state of repair. How could the addition of extra housing be considered before these issues have been addressed?

Original submission

I am a resident of Marks Tey and travel to Braintree on a daily basis for work. The A120 is currently is very poor repair, and is over saturated with traffic. Adding more housing in and around this route and that of the A12 is surely going to increase the problem. I would have though that the best approach would be to improve the infrastructure first and then assess the impact of adding more traffic through the addition of extra housing. I also have two infant children and I am concerned how new housing developments will impact on the local schools and medical centers.
