Representation 835 on Preferred Options Local Plan by mrs karen newton

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: Mersea is an island not a city. Enough is enough, after the additional houses attached to Wellhouse, which exceeded the amount originally planned. There doesn't seem to be sufficient monitoring in place once the initial decision has been made to the number of houses actually being built.
Huge impact on space, people, services, infrastructure. Also during the Summer months the capacity swells considerably already. Lots of empty buildings around the island that could be turned to better use, i.e. residential. Once the land has gone we can never claim it back!
