“As resident of Friston and therefore a member of the local community, I wish to register once again that I am totally and utterly against Scottish Powers development proposals. Those that under this scheme for SPR do not live in this community, and therefore have no concern for those that live in this beautiful countryside. They could not care less and have adopted this attitude since this process began. My other cancers are: 1. The impact these proposals will have are damaging to the whole landscape, to wild life, peacefulness of the local community. 2. The SPR proposals have already had a detrimental effect on residents ability to see their properties and has devalued current prices. 3. The selection of this site 'beggars belief' when the Sizewell site could be used. To put up arguments about the effect on the reptile population is appalling. 4. The effect of noise and light pollution would be impossible for us to live next to. 5. No practical proposition has been put forward to deal with traffic/transport and the small size of Friston's road access. 6. The sheer size of the three sub-stations is unacceptable. These will become a blot on the this beautiful landscape. 7. Friston is ringed with listed buildings. Landscape planting does nothing to mitigate our heritage. 8. The village is already under flood risk. These proposals do nothing to prevent any ingress from the site. 9. These proposals do not provide jobs. The reverse will happen wit the effect on tourism. 10. No one cares anymore. The National Grid and SPR can just come along and do what they like. Despite numerous meetings and my attendance at such meetings nothing has been proposed as an alternative. The effect on Friston will mean that our beautiful village will never be the same. Shameful.”
