East Anglia TWO Offshore Windfarm

I am writing in support of the SASES & Friston Parish Council case regarding industrial development at Friston. The development would change a rural village in the Suffolk Coastal area into an industrial site. The quality of life in this area is exceptionally good, as evidenced by the number of people leaving the city to live here, and the longevity of those who live here. There are more industrialised ares that could be used; the existing plan to route wind power from Bawdsey to Bramford, around Sizewell or the Lowestoft area. The road system around Friston is totally unsuited to heavy lorries - the impact of HGV's travelling in both directions would be disastrous. Already there have been many crashes & near misses on the A12 bend at Farnham. With no dual carriageway roads north of Ipswich, apart from around Woodbridge, this area is not suited to industrial development. While I do not dispute the need for renewable energy, what is the point if it ruins the countryside?
