East Anglia TWO Offshore Windfarm
Received 11 January 2020
From Colin Roxby
“The proposed siting of the sub-station at Friston is completely unsuitable for the following reasons:- Over 80 acres of very productive arable land will be lost. The loud humming noises (tonality) from the transformers, fans and harmonic filters will cause annoyance and health problems for residents. The construction 20 metres high right on the very edge of Friston will destroy the rural aspect from the village green, the Grade II listed church and homes. Light and noise pollution plus loss of habitat will damage wildlife. The access roads to the site are narrow, winding single track roads will few passing places and no pedestrian space and very tight corners. Widening or realignment is impossible owing to the close proximity of properties. This will make access for both construction and operational traffic extremely hazardous. The area is prone to flooding. The unsightliness of the sub-station will deter tourists, resulting in loss of livelihood tin the area. The cable corridor will cause irreparable damage to an AOPNB. The repositioning of footpaths will cause much inconvenience and danger to pedestrians Houses will become unsaleable and Friston will become a ghost village.”
