Dear Examining Authority I am appalled at the proposals for both East Anglia North One (10077) and EA North Two (10078) for the following reasons: - The Thorpeness cliffs are incredibly fragile, soft sand and not suitable for landing cables. The potential environmental damage and impact for the coastline and village is too great. The coast is already liable to erosion, so it is poor planning to add large infrastructure to a vulnerable site, both for the longevity of the project proposed as well as the local environment. - The habitat around Thorpeness includes 23 SSSIs. Many would be irreparably damaged, particularly Sandlings Heath, but also the Suffolk Coasts and Heath AONB which forms an essential wildlife corridor for migrating species. - The potential site for the Substation at Friston is part of a village already liable to flooding. - Pollution: noise, light, haulage. This is not only poor for locals but DMO suggests would deter tourism on which much of the local economy relies. - Access for emergency services hampered by building works of a massive scale lasting 7 years.
