East Anglia ONE North Offshore Windfarm
Received 08 January 2020
From David Gordon
“First, the Energy Minister is to launch a review into the impact windfarms have onshore. Until this review is completed I would submit that it is premature and prejudicial for you to consider the SP application On the application itself, my concerns are those expressed during the so called public consultation process. These concerns have been expressed by many people and SP has recorded them in the community response part of their paperwork. But SP have completely ignored the concerns of the public 1. Destruction of AONB. Loss of very many trees and hedgerows and associated wildlife 2. Damage to the tourist trade, particularly in Thorpeness, and consequent loss of jobs 3. Permanent damage to the village of Friston. Resident’s houses unsaleable/fall in value 4. Landfall under a crumbling sandstone cliff does not seem sensible 5. Traffic issues. Local country roads unsuitable for construction traffic. Risk of death/injury to residents And there is the wider and very important point that there a number of similar applications in the pipeline and these need to be coordinated in order to minimise the damage and destruction”
