I live in the Isle of Man. My children & I visit my family in Leiston around 8 times a year and I intend to retire in Suffolk. I object to the Scottish Power Renewables planning application for a number of reasons. The massive destruction of the unspoilt landscape, farmland, ancient woodland and coastline, including the impact of landing cables on the fragile, crumbling cliffs at Thorpeness. The massive impact of building works and cable laying - threatening wildlife, ecosystems, destroying our Heritage Coast and Sandlings Heath. The impact on tourism, loss of trade and business to small villages. A DMO report says traffic congestion and related issues will deter visitors to the area. The impact of pollution - excessive noise, traffic, light. The impact of excessive heavy loads, HGV's on small roads, congestion through villages, questioning the suitability of the current road network. The proximity of a large substations to Friston The permanent and temporary closure of PRoEs ( footpaths, bridleways, byways and cycle paths) The fear of further substations and inter-connectors following on in quick succession.
