East Anglia TWO Offshore Windfarm

I wish to register an interest in the proposals being made by Scottish Power to build substations in the village in which I live. We will lose 83 acres of prime agricultural land along with ancient public footpaths, trees and hedges providing valuable habitats for a variety of flora and fauna, given we do not know what the future holds once Brexit is in place I am concerned we shall lose land on which food can be grown. There is concern about light pollution from the substations and, that while construction takes place, the village will virtually be cut off. While I accept we need renewable energy it is essential to think carefully about how this can be done with minimal damage to this wonderful coastal area in order to hand it on to future generations.
