Wind power is essential but it must develop in a way that respects the local ecology and environment. The proposed project does not seem to minimise this damage. There is no use of existing brownfield sites such as Sizewell power station. Furthermore there seems to be little sharing of resources between the various energy companies involved possibly for commercial reasons. Government should insist on a joined up approach to the various projects so as to minimise the environmental damage. Commercial interests seem to be preventing this at present. Strong central planning is needed to minimise the environmental damage and the government should require the power companies to work together.
