“Dear Sir or Madam, I would like to make the following representations in relation to the application East Anglia ONE North Offshore Windfarm (Planning Inspectorate Reference: EN010077). • Cumulative impact of Sizewell, National Grid and offshore windfarms. • Negative impact on human quality of life, enjoyment and use of the area. • Negative impact on the landscape and heritage of the rural coastal area. • Site selection and current land use. • Light pollution from the construction phase and during operation. • The socio-economic impact a job sense and tourism. • Flood risk of the proposed areas that would be affected and where floodwaters may be pushed away to. • Disturbance and stopping up of public rights of way. • Damage and removal to onshore ecology sites and ongoing effects of substation operation on remaining sites. • Design and noise impact of the construction and operation of the substation and cables. • Traffic and transport routes for the construction and operation of the substation and cables. • The route of the cable, particularly the landfall at the fragile cliffs of Thorpeness. The location and scale of the project is not suitable for this rural coastal area. Regards, Catherine Hackshall”
