I am in favour of renewable energy production but the impact of this on shore has to be minimised. I, like most members of the public was unaware of the huge scale of the on shore infrastructure required to serve the incoming power. For a rural community to have this gigantic industrial complex constructed in its midst will be irreversibly damaging to the quality of life, and for many for the rest of their life, as well as to the environment. There are alternatives to this such as the established site at Bramford that has recently been completed, the financial cost of using such an alternative cannot be compared to the permanent devastation that this development will cause and should not be a consideration. There are no short or long term benefits to their communities that will be affected by this. There will be years of construction causing traffic chaos and pollution on small roads not designed or capable of the huge amount of heavy construction traffic required to build this. Local businesses and tourism will also be adversely affected.
