Don't make further changes to a rural idyll that attracts tourists in summer and that we love in winter!
Mersea lacks capacity for this much increase: doctor, school, shops, water, land drainage, roads on Mersea (two for access!), road to Mersea, parking, sewage etc..
Mersea serves a hinterland with its facilities and many residents have summer guests - numbers are much higher than predictions indicate.
Conditions on any development need to include the above and walkways to the shops for new residents, a car park for existing Dawes Lane residents so that emergency vehicles can get through & a bike path to Colchester.
