Suffolk is a county of rich and beautiful heritage, full of its niche and gorgeous market towns and villages and its shimmering shorelines, serving as a role model to the East Coast and areas alike. I have fond memories of my father who would take me away on vacations in the summertime to Aldeburgh and areas alike. We would buy ice creams in Thorpeness and play in the arcades on the bustling pier at Southwold, and have mysterious adventures on the walk from Snape Maltings to the discreetly flourishing hamlet of Iken. It came to the point where Suffolk became a home away from home, and I feel that a lack of respect for the history of the area will amount in the eventual degradation of such a stunning scene. Unfortunately my father has passed some 5 years ago, but I am sure that he would be disgusted at the mere thought of this campaign just as I am. It is harrowing to me that my children will never get the chance to experience the beauty and natural splendour of the area, forming lifelong memories and lifelong emotional bonds. This thought greatly saddens me, and I hope that the pioneers of this project will be able to see past their pockets to understand that not just wildlife is at stake here, but so are families, histories and lifelong memories. I think of my father in times like this and believe that the usurpation of such a thriving community is not a step that needs to be taken, and am extremely disappointed that this scheme was not challenged sooner. What hopes does this hold for the future of my children?
