East Anglia TWO Offshore Windfarm

I object to the planning application on the grounds that the cumulative environmental impact of so many separate energy projects in the region that don’t tie in together via an offshore ringmain is disastrous for our wildlife and biodiversity in a time when that should be the priority above all else. We need a properly thought out strategy that, yes, sites the infrastructure needed for renewable energy production offshore (windfarms) and on brownfield sites (e.g substations etc) and minimises cabling trench, transport, building impacts so that we destroy as little as possible. We simply cannot afford to continue treating the land and sea as something we can trash, it is what ultimately keeps us alive.
