Original submission

This plan to build yet another 60 houses in addition to the huge expansion at the Rowhedge Port will simply overwhelm the village of Rowhedge. It is not just the School & Surgery that cannot cope - where are all these people going to work - They will doubtless all have to drive to Colchester or further afield as employment opportunities in Rowhedge are normally counted in single figures. Perhaps the plan is that they will not in fact be working at all. The main road into Colchester goes down to a single lane through Old Heath and is already becoming impassable at times - not to mention the Sewage works which now overflows all year round emitting the most foul stench of raw sewage - I bet no plan exists to expand that. I really think some proper thought needs to be shown here and this plan to expand the village, to the sole benefit of the developers, needs to be struck out.

Thank you
