East Anglia TWO Offshore Windfarm

I wish to object to The Scottish Power Renewables planning application for East Anglia Two. This, together with plans for East Anglia One has not been thought out. Not only would it destroy huge swathes of the East Suffolk Countryside, but the area simply cannot sustain a development of this kind, both in terms of infrastructure and the huge damage to the local economy. This area relies on tourism and agriculture as its twin pillars of economic growth. Both would be hugely devastated by this project. Whilst, generally in favour of wind powered energy, no consideration as to how all this new energy can be connected to the National Grid, in a consolidated and economic fashion, has been given. We should anticipate a little disruption that this case is a classic example of an ill conceived and "rushed through" project where viable alternatives have not been considered. I simply cannot believe that any sane person would think it a good plan.
