Dear Examining Authority Re: East Anglia North One. I wish to object to this ScottishPower Renewables planning application, for the following reasons. - the use of countryside at Friston for substation complexes the size of Wembley Stadium. - 11 km of cable trenches, destroying environmentally sensitive areas. - the threat to wildlife and the important Sandlings Heath. - Severing the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB causing problems to migrating species. - the destruction of ancient woodland. - light, noise and air pollution in construction of Substation and infrastructure. - increased traffic on roads, a danger to cyclists and residents. - permanent and temporary closure of PRoWs ( footpaths, bridleways, byways and cycle paths ) - the impact on local businesses, possible loss of trade, visitor income - the impact on tourism, I fully approve of the development of renewable energy from wind off the East Anglian Coast, however I think that alternatives to the resulting industrialisation and ecological damage that building a series of onshore Substations would bring to the people and fragile and vulnerable landscape of the Suffolk Sandlings ought to be considered. thank you for your consideration Jonathan Valentine
