East Anglia ONE North Offshore Windfarm
Received 07 December 2019
From Philip Lines
“I have consistently argued that it is not in anyone's best interest to locate the onshore elements of this scheme several miles inland. Not only will this cause a significant blight in a rural area of natural beauty, severely impair the lives of those living in and around the village of Friston, there is also the question of the damage an upheaval that will result from the necessity to lay cables from the shore to Friston across several miles of countryside. This might be acceptable if there was absolutely no feasible alternative. To make this choice when there is a perfectly good location at Sizewell that would group together power resources on the coast makes no sense either in terms of the negative impact of the Friston site or economic arguments.”
