Cable Corridor route - destruction of woodland/AONB and closeness to residential properties. Loss of access to amenity areas, footpaths/public rights of way. Additional traffic (heavy lorries, vans and cars used by construction workers) and the considerable impact the additional use of these local roads, particularly A1094, B1121, B1069, and B135, will have on the community. I believe there will be overwhelming harm to this area both environmentally and commercially for many years to come and alternative solutions should be investigated fully before any final decision is made. Cable corridor route will cause destruction of woodland/AONB as well as causing problems to local communities being close to a number of residential properties. There will be an adverse effect on the local economy of the area being largely reliant on Toursism and Day Visitors with an effective fall in the number of visitors and holiday makers reducing the income of local businesses. An increase in traffic on the A1094, B1121 and B1069 which are unsuitable for HGV construction traffic. There will also be an increase in the use of these roads by small vans and cars used by construction workers which will increase the congestion and difficulty for the local community to access the A12. Overall there will be a great deal of disruption to the area during construction and long term harm to the environment and economy of the area in the future The whole project needs to be reviewed to find an alternative solution.
