East Anglia TWO Offshore Windfarm

I am objecting to the plan to build huge electricity substations near the beautiful village of Friston. The substations are too big and too close to a small rural village, a lively community which would be swamped and killed were the development to go ahead as planned. Scottish power have paid no attention at all to the objections raised during the previous consultations. They propose building two trenches for some 9kms along a fragile coastline, destroying ancient woodland, ANOB land and prime agricultural land and all of this along a coastline which is famous for its tourist attractions, including the Snape Malting and pretty well known villages. I fully support green energy and the construction of wind farms. But what I do object to is individual power companies carving up large areas of beautiful coastline without assessing the devastating impact of the totality of all the projects. I object in my capacity not as a resident but as a visitor to the area from London, visiting to see friends and valuing the very special nature of the coastline and its beauty and cultural heritage.
