Representation

I support the representation being made by SASES and Friston Parish Council and believe the proposed site will cause irreparable damage to the character of Friston , Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB and Tourism because of the following . *Landscape and visual effects . *Noise/light pollution/damage to air quality *Design issues and Masterplan . *Traffic and Transport . *Seascape and visual effects . *Cumulative impacts/residual impacts of the project . *Loss of equity and financial implications . *Socioeconomic impacts/Tourism/no jobs from onshore development . *Effect on Public Rights of Way . *Flood risk . *Ecology/coastal change . *Archaeology/historic buildings/ancient woodlands . *Construction Management . Furthermore I feel the proposed Permanent Access Road will be unnecessarily near my home and compromise its drainage and also unnecessarily wide given it will only be used for LGV and maintenance access except for the Abnormal Indivisible Loads (will it be illuminated and outside of emergency what hours will it be used ?) . Also the road widening of Saxmundham Road should only be undertaken to the extent this is necessary for the AILs and reinstated after and that SPR must take steps to prevent the Saxmundam Road being used for Works Traffic including construction workers going to site - they should use the A1094 and Haul Road .
