“Cumulative impact on local communities of up to 7 energy projects occurring consecutively over 12 to 15 years. Unsuitability and fragility of THORPENESS CLIFFS as site for landing cables. Substations dangerously close & dominating a small village liable to flooding. 11km of cable trenches destroying environmentally sensitive area. Cable trenches & haul roads too close to residential homes, Threat to wildlife and the important Sandlings Heath Destruction of ancient woodland. Local road network unsuitable for the high traffic and HGVs. Light pollution & Noise pollution. Emergency Services delays endangering lives. Permanent & temporary closures of PROws Loss of trade to local businesses. Loss 0f visitors income leading to loss of jobs. In the event of nuclear incident the evacuation route would be severely hampered. Air pollution from traffic and trenches dug through Suffolks light sandy soil which blows causing visibility hazard and also health issues. Use of unspoilt countryside at Friston for substation complexes the size of Wembley Stadium”
