Received 24 January 2020
From KWS Ashurst
“Dear Sir or Madam, I wish to object to this ScottishPower Renewables planning application for the following reasons: 1) The cumulative, deleterious impact upon local communities of up to 7 energy projects occurring consecutively over many years. 2) The unacceptable use of unspoilt countryside at Friston in particular for such proposed huge substation complexes. 3) The substations will be too close to and will dominate Friston a small village already liable to flooding. 4) The cable trenches (11kms) and haul roads will be too close to homes and will destroy environmentally sensitive areas. 5) Ancient woodland will be destroyed and the severing of the AONB will become a severe threat to wildlife and the 'corridor' of migrating species. 6) There will be an unacceptable degree of permanent and even temporary PRoWs. 7) The local road network is totally unsuited to the high traffic levels (HGVs in particular) incidental to the development. 8) There will be an appalling and totally unacceptable degree of light, noise and air pollution. 9) The hugely significant adverse economic impact upon tourism and upon local businesses. Yours faithfully, KWS Ashurst”
