East Anglia ONE North Offshore Windfarm

I object to the East Anglia One North Offshore Windfarm project as currently proposed, primarily because of the planned construction of the enormous sub-station very close to the village of Frinton. The proposed sub-station, together with the one for East Anglia Two (and any others that might follow), is planned to be about 6 stories high and would be totally over-bearing to the village, dominating both it and the surrounding unspoilt countryside. Given the height and scale of the sub-station, the proposed "screening" in the Landscape Management Plan is likely to be almost completely ineffective - with native trees likely to take many decades to reach useful screening heights in Suffolk's low rainfall environment.
