East Anglia ONE North Offshore Windfarm
Received 21 January 2020
From Margaret Palmer
“Dear Examining Authority, RE: EAST ANGLIA NORTH ONE As my family has lived in Thorpeness and Sizewell for the past two centuries we are alarmed by the ScottishPower Renewables planning application, and wish to object for the following reasons: The Thorpeness cliffs are very fragile and unstable, and not a suitable site for landing cables The area is massively important environmentally and the threat to wildlife and endangered species is completely unacceptable Severing the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB causing problems to migrating species and severing the wildlife corridor The threat to wildlife and the important Sandlings Heath The destruction of beautiful and ancient woodland Permanent and temporary closure of PRoWs (footpaths, bridleways, byways and cycle paths) 11Km of cable trenches, destroying environmentally sensitive areas For the village the cumulative impact on the community of up to seven energy projects occurring consecutively over 12 to 15 years The cable trenches and haul roads are too close to residential homes The local road network unsuitable for the high traffic levels and more HGVs Light pollution. Suffolk’s famous dark skies lost Noise pollution. Suffolk’s famous peace and tranquillity lost Increased traffic on roads, a danger to cyclists and residents Emergency Services. Inevitable delays endangering lives In event of a Nuclear incident the evacuation routes would be severely hampered Impact on businesses. Loss of trade, visitor income, jobs leading to social and economic decline.”
