East Anglia ONE North Offshore Windfarm
Received 22 January 2020
From Peter de Mille
“The proposal would seriously and adversely affect the Suffolk Coastal and Heaths AONB. In particular: 1. The Thorpeness cliffs are already extremely vulnerable and fragile. They would be further endangered. 2. The cable trenches and haul roads are far too close to residential properties and would sever the AONB. 3. The proposal would destroy ancient woodland. 4. The use of unspoilt countryside at Friston for the huge substation is entirely inappropriate. 5. The impact on tourism, trade and businesses would be substantial and severely detrimental. 6. The roads and infrastructure are inadequate for the high volume of construction traffic. 7. The wind farm is very extensive with many miles of coast more suitable environmentally even if they would be a little more expensive in comparative terms. The inevitable harm that would be caused in the proposed area renders it disproportionate to any such extra cost elsewhere.”
