East Anglia ONE North Offshore Windfarm
Received 21 January 2020
From Catherine Howard-Dobson
“Dear Examining Authority, RE: EAST ANGLIA NORTH ONE (and EAST ANGLIA TWO) I wish to object to this Scottish Power Renewables planning application, for the following reasons: 1.The cumulative impact on local communities of up to 7 energy projects occurring consecutively over 12 to 15 years 2.The use of unspoilt countryside at Friston for large substation complexes, which will dominate a small village liable to flooding. 3.The threat to wildlife and the important Sandlings Heath. 4.The destruction of ancient woodland & loss of footpaths, bridleways, byways and cycle paths. 5. The local road network is unsuitable for the high traffic levels and more HGVs 6. Pollution – Light, noise & air pollution. 7. The impact on tourism. DMO report says traffic congestion and related issues would put tourists off. 8. Impact on businesses. Loss of trade, visitor income, jobs leading to social and economic decline”
