East Anglia TWO Offshore Windfarm

I wish to object to ScottishPower Renewables planing application for the following reasons: Though supportive of offshore wind energy the proposed land based substations wil have a detrimental impact to this area. The East Anglian coastline is natural and beautiful this proposal will cause the destruction of parts of it and have a great environmental impact. The breakup of the coast line will cause problems to migrating wildlife The countryside will be irreparably spoilt and the destruction of woodland will happen if substations and other infrastructures are allowed to be built. This again impacting upon the wildlife. From information available there are brownfield sights in the vicinity that could be considered that would have far less impact upon the environment. For local communities this will have an impact on jobs created from trade and tourism as the area becomes less appealing. Increased light pollution and peace and tranquillity being affected by massive infrastructure.
