Representation 931 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Ramblers Association - Colchester (Mrs M E Hobby)

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Mersea Island, SS17a: Mersea Housing and Employment
Representation: 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.
