East Anglia ONE North Offshore Windfarm
Received 24 January 2020
From Christopher Wilson
“I am very much in favour of offshore wind farms, subject to them being located in the least environmentally damaging sites ie away from avian and marine feeding/nesting grounds, but my concerns here are:- - Unsuitability of Thorpeness Cliffs as the site for landing cables as the cliffs are so fragile and facing the impacts of climate change - The cumulative impact on local communities of up to 7 energy projects being undertaken in the same area and some at the same time - It is correct that the onshore infrastructure needs to be outside the AONB, but use of unspoilt countryside at Friston for substation complexes needs to be reviewed and a brownfield site found - Suffolk's famous peace and tranquillity will be lost and replaced with noise and air pollution. This will cause a decline in tourism, loss of trade, visitor income, jobs leading to social and economic decline”
