East Anglia ONE North Offshore Windfarm
Received 22 January 2020
From Carolyn Ridgeon
“I am writing as I have before because we have lived in Friston for 32 years and this proposed development is causing tremendous anxiety. This is a beautiful rural area and historically an arable farming region and these plans are going to alter this situation and it will never be redeemed. Not to mention the stress of the inevitable upheaval caused during the construction phase. The potential flood risk which is already acute with all the pigs on the fields surrounding the village. We are unhappy that the value of our home will be compromised. The whole thing is ruinous to the environment, the wildlife and the living standards of the villagers who reside in Friston and the surrounding locale. How can this possibly be allowed? SPR are calling this renewable energy, better for the environment, but I beg to differ when one looks at the damage to the beautiful surrounding countryside that this preposterous plan will bring about. We like to walk on the footpaths in the area ear-marked for development. This will be a vastly different experience with a substation humming away in the fields. What of the potential problems to our health? Why should a community have to tolerate this? Put this ugly excrescence somewhere that is not a rural idyll and make the design more palatable as well.”
