East Anglia ONE North Offshore Windfarm
Received 20 January 2020
From Melissa Baker
“Dear Examining Authority Re EAST ANGLIA NORTH ONE (and EAST ANGLIA TWO) I wish to object to this ScottishPower Renewables Planning application, for the following reasons: * Destruction of ancient woodland * Threat to wildlife and the important Sandlings Heath * Severing the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB causing problems to migrating species and severing the wildlife corridor * Air pollution from traffic and trenches dug through Suffolk’s light sandy soil which blows/runs away, causing visibility hazard and health issues * The traffic and pollution created will adversely affect the physical and mental health and well being of the people living and working in the area * There is a large elderly population living in Aldeburgh who need to get to Ipswich for hospital appointments and need ambulances. The huge increase in traffic will make it harder for these people to get the medical attention they need In closing - As David Attenborough recently said - We have the know how and expertise to find better ways to provide power. But for some reason we are not implementing them. We must start caring for our environment and stop destroying it otherwise we will not have a future.”
