Dear Examining Authority, RE: EAST ANGLIA NORTH ONE (and EAST ANGLIA TWO) I wish to object to this ScottishPower Renewables planning application, for the following reasons: ? Unsuitability and fragility of Thorpeness Cliffs as site for landing cables ? Use of unspoilt countryside at Friston for substation complexes the size of Wembley Stadium ? 11Km of cable trenches, destroying environmentally sensitive areas ? Threat to wildlife and the important Sandlings Heath ? Destruction of ancient woodland ? Local road network unsuitable for the high traffic levels and more HGVs ? Light pollution. Suffolk’s famous dark skies lost ? Noise pollution. Suffolk’s famous peace and tranquillity lost ? Air pollution from traffic and trenches dug through Suffolk’s light sandy soil which blows/runs away, causing visibility hazard and health issues ? Increased traffic on roads, a danger to cyclists and residents ? Impact on businesses. Loss of trade, visitor income, jobs leading to social and economic decline ? Permanent and temporary closure of PRoWs (footpaths, bridleways, byways and cycle paths) Many thanks, Fiona
