I object to the application, due to the detrimental impact the substation proposed for Friston and its related infrastructure will have on the Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB and adjacent countryside as a result of both the works required for its installation and the long term negative environmental impact such a substation will have on the locality. Also due to the serious negative impacts during construction and subsequently on the surrounding local community, businesses and tourism. I understand national planning policies and statements do not support destruction of, or significant harm to, irreplaceable countryside and wildlife habitat, nor serious negative impact on the local community and economy. In particular these would not support such harmful impacts when alternative brownfield sites are available (such as at Sizewell) which a development consent order would empower the applicants to acquire through compulsory purchase powers in the order.
