Concern about long term effects to health, educational success of our children and economic damage to the local area. Agricultural land being lost to industrial construction, some of it permanent. Loss of tourist economy, including music, artists, sailors and wildlife specialists. Loss of currently protected areas - ANOBs and SSSIs. Why are they even being considered for use? Endangered wildlife will have nowhere else to go. Impact of other potential developments in the same area such as Sizewells C&D and all the new link roads planned. All plans lasting more than a decade. Local communities not resilient enough for impact of migrant workforce, its demands/needs and impact on local infrastructure. Security in terms of threats to terrorism when so much is concentrated in one area. Safety when migrant workforce won't all come with family support - lone men living away from home for years. The health of the local communities in terms of the effects of light and noise pollution with extended shift work and heavy plant machinery.
