Construction of a the EA1 windfarm substation in the village of Friston will have the following specific consequences: * Destruction of a rural landscape that is valued by residents of Friston and visitors to the Suffolk Coastal Area. * Generation of traffic noise and artificial light both during construction and subsequent operation. * Intrusive tonal noise (50 Hz and harmonics) from electronic conversion of windfarm feed to grid frequency and voltage. * Generation of heavy traffic to which existing roads are unsuited. * Degradation of quality of life for all in Suffolk without compensating local benefit. * Insufficient consideration given to alterative sites such as land near Sizewell B/C or brownfield sites such as Bradwell power station in Essex.
