East Anglia ONE North Offshore Windfarm
Received 17 January 2020
From Mr Graham French
“I wish to object to this Scottish Power Renewables planning application for the following reasons: Cumulative impact on local communities of up to 7 energy projects occurring consecutively over 12-14 years. Use of unspoilt countryside for a huge substation at a time we should be giving environmental impacts a priority during the current climate emergency. Once ruined it can. never be reversed. It is unacceptable for 11km of cable trenches to destroy environmentally sensitive areas. Threat to wildlife and the important Sandlings Heath. Severing the beautiful and unique Suffolk coast and heaths AONB causing problems for migrating birds and severing the wildlife corridor Destruction of Ancient woodlands In the event of a Nuclear incident evacuation routes would be hampered Permanent closure of public footpaths. Human beings have destroyed this planet for themselves and the millions of other species that we share it with. Wind farms are necessary but the infrastructure proposed for this project is mindless destruction.”
