The proposal to direct heavy traffic along Saxmundham and Leiston Roads in Aldeburgh:- * will have a disproportionate effect on residential areas of that town rather than by a more direct route. It affects pedestrian access routes to local shopping and school, pedestrian crossings in use for both and residential parking for approx 40 homes with no alternative parking available. The town end of the route is already subject to heavy traffic congestion particularly during the summer months. * is unnecessary when the other routes used for most of the construction traffic can be used. It will extend the area of the ANOB affected by construction blight when there is little significant advantage in doing so. The fact that the number of traffic movements proposed have been reduced on consultation demonstrates that there are workable alternatives available. *the proposal needs to be coordinated with the other energy proposals for the area to minimise disruption rather than the present piecemeal approach which increases disruption.
