“From: [Redacted] Subject: Objection to Scottish Power EA1N & EA2 onshore Project development - We totally support the representations from SASES and Friston Parish Council Living on Grove Road the following points are of serious concern: - Siting of 3 substations and expansion plans for Nautilus and Eurolink etc - Has any cumulative impact been addressed when the site is 250metres from houses, 350metres from listed church and 500metres from many residents! - NOISE of construction (years) and when in operation. Again plans indicate rather then minimizing noise pollution, it is the opposite! Harmonic filters are not screened The tonality from possibly 5/7 large buildings will effect our lives Sound banks / barriers including bank tree planting should be included in design One Building is a GIS Hall, which contains gas which during operation any time of day can trip and make a very loud bang, like thunder clap - TRAFFIC and TRANSPORT: regarding GROVE ROAD No thought given to the preconstruction track within the village HGV construction traffic crossing it at village edge Daily coping of 350+ workers, all other delivery vehicles to site and back Being single track, passing places on residents drives, with no street lighting and no pavements for walkers, cyclists etc. It is also a flood relief road. This is why there is such concern over the site location - FLOODING: Friston has recently been several times been under threat of flooding before any development Grove Road is becoming a river on a regular basis and the water is running of the fields allocated for the 94metres wide haul road and would make flooding far worse. Nothing has been mentioned about flood risk from that area. It may be temporary, but still years. - HAUL ROAD: Is for HGV construction traffic, and too close to residents and the position is unacceptable. Noise mitigation needed during construction period (years) Sound barriers / earth mounds should be placed south of the haul road to protect noise pollution to residents. The cable route will destroy the whole area including AONB land, and hertige coast is lost forever. - HUMAN IMPACT: Not taken into account the vulnerable ageing population. Loss of beautiful scenery with lack of banked planting Constant noise of traffic / building equipment Vibration through major earth movement Traffic jams / gridlock around local area Light pollution at construction and after completion Sizewell C construction has not been assessed accurately - SPR have ignored the existence of Friston, even omitting it from maps if possible. Rather than any compromise to alleviate the copious worries residents have, they are moving the development sites closer and into the village itself. - We have moved to Friston, because it is a lovely quite village and wanted to enjoy the country side and not living in an industrial area - You cannot allow SPR to get away with the blatant ignoring of FRISTON”
