“I am a resident of Aldeburgh and have had a property here since 1981. The thought of queuing in traffic to get home will be a disaster. The charms of Aldeburgh will be affected. I have friends who live at Thorpeness whose houses are on the edge of the cliffs and are already at risk of loss of loosing their properties with cliff side erosion more excavation will hasten their fall. I also have friends with properties at Friston where a substation would not only devastate their existences but wipe out the beauty of quiet and tranquil landscape, bird life ,amenities of the land beautiful clear night skies A substation the size of Wembley stadium would be a disaster to the surrounding area.this invasion will dominate the small village liable to flood. With pollution both fumes and continuous light glare from 24 hour light round the clock.What a nightmare great cable trenches will destroy sensitive environment , will be dug close to residents, a threat to wildlife. Destroy ancient woodland and disturb bird migration. The roads will be a nightmare, they have not been designed for heavy traffic .I understand 300 workers will be driving to work the majority of the A12. Causing huge congestion for the already heavy commuting cars and holiday traffic. Tourism to Aldeburgh will be affected who wants to sit in a jam on the way for a day out. Therefore shopkeepers and holiday makers will be affected.Loss of trade, visitor income loss of jobs leading to economic decline. Health issues, air pollution .light pollution, noise pollution.danger to cyclists and walkers. Permanent and temporary closures of footpaths ,bridleways, byways and cycle paths delays for emergency services.In an event of a nuclear fall out delays to escape routes will be effected”
