East Anglia TWO Offshore Windfarm
Received 07 December 2019
From Michael Jones
“The area of Suffolk coastal and Friston in particular is totally unsuitable for this proposal being in attractive rural countryside which is a major tourist area. The site proposed next to Friston will require large trench excavation over a very long distance causing huge disruption and spoiling of a large area of Suffolk The site regularly floods the village which will become worse when built upon. The village church, which is grade 2* listed, is among the nearest buildings. Next to the church are three grade 2 listed thatched cottages dating from 15th century. There will be noise generated by the transformers. The substations are huge and will dominate the village. The rural road network is unable to handle the heavy major traffic. An offshore ring main is a much better option as I believe there will be many more projects. Site is totally unsuitable destroying attractive countryside and a major tourist area. Grade 2* and grade 2 star buildings very close. Major village flooding in Friston Noise from the transformers Major excavation needed over long distance. Roads unable to cope Many more projects to be in the area”
