East Anglia TWO Offshore Windfarm

The location chosen for the proposed development by SPR is in the middle of ancient and unspoiled farmland and will change the nature of the area in perpetuity. There are a number of sites elsewhere on the East Coast which are both more suitable from an impact point of view, in that they are already developed or partially developed, and from the point of view of delivering the power generated to the consumer. The location suggested by SPR has been selected purely from the point of view of convenience in that it is close to the offshore wind generators, but this does not take into account the environmental impact of the scheme, not the fact that there are sites further south along the East coast where a development of this type will have much lower impact on the environment, on wildlife and on people.
