Your Representation: Dear Examining Authority, RE: EAST ANGLIA NORTH ONE (and EAST ANGLIA TWO) I wish to object to this ScottishPower Renewables planning application, for the following reasons : As a local resident the proposal would spoil the countryside around Thorpeness and Friston. The cliffs at Thorpeness are not suitable for landing cables due to their extreme fragility. The substations at Friston would dominate a currently peaceful village community. The trenches are planned to go through environmentally sensitive areas which attract many visitors due to the varied wildlife, especially bird life. Many species use this area as a migratory route and a wildlife corridor. The tourism trade is crucial to the resident population of both Aldeburgh and Thorpeness and the local community would be badly affected if the tourist trade is reduced. The local road network is not suitable for the high levels of lorries which will be using the roads throughout the construction phase. The area is extremely popular with cyclists and the extra traffic on these roads would be a serious danger to both cyclists and local traffic. I sincerely hope the views of local residents will be considered.
