East Anglia TWO Offshore Windfarm
Received 22 January 2020
From Frances Cahill
“*The proposed development would irreversibly damage the environment in an area designated as a heritage coast and of outstanding natural beauty. This harm would be: 1. Visual - namely to the look of what is a unique and tranquil landscape. 2. In terms of damage to the natural environment and the habitat of plant life and animals; 3. To the unspoilt character of the villages, by creating a vast and disproportionate infrastructure of buildings and roads that will put pressure on schools, health services and other local facilities 4. In terms of pollution and noise levels, damaging the quality of the air because of the huge increase in vehicle and other emissions 5. The destruction of the identity of small rural communities. *We owe it both to present and future generations to preserve such a quiet, unspoilt area of natural and fragile beauty which once harmed, can never be restored. Please, please consider other options such as offshore hubs or ring mains and listen to the voice of the local community. The proposals are being made without thought to the views of local people; to the views of the many who visit this part of Suffolk in search of peace and a break from busy, stressful lives; nor to the impact on our children. A wrong decision now, to destroy a precious natural asset, will reverberate down the generations.”
