I wish to object to the ScottishPower Renewables planning Application for the following reasons:- Use of unspoilt countryside at Friston for the huge substation complexes Putting substations and large cables so close to housing and dominating small villages Cable trenches destroying environmentally sensitive areas Threat to wildlife and Sandlings Heath Severing the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB causing problems to migrating species and severing the wildlife corridor Destruction of environmentally valuable woodland Light and Noise pollution The local road network is unsuitable for the increase in traffic with several knock on effects. This will be the start of something that will continue to grow over several years, so this is not just about the current application, it also concerns the ongoing impact. There are more suitable locations to put these substations that are brownfield sites and not an Conservation and AONB area.
