I wish to object to the SRP planning application for the following reasons; -I believe the works planned will cause damage to our rare sandlings environment and break up the areas of coastal heath-land preventing movement and migration and disturbance to wildlife. -The increase of traffic the works will create will bring congestion to our roads and make cycling; a major pastime for locals and visitors, unsafe and unpleasant. -The substations are too close to the village of Friston an unspoiled Suffolk village impacting on quality of life during construction and beyond with noise, light and air pollution. - The whole area will be under severe pressure with other major power infrastructure works planned a Sizewell leading to over a decade of disruption to our community which is rural, tourism and agriculture based. - There will be impact on tourism due to congestion and loss of tranquil countryside with attendant loss of income across a wide range of hospitality, retail and farm shop businesses in the area. This will affect employment and earning opportunists for local people.
