Hornsea Project Three Offshore Wind Farm
From Councillor Greg Peck (Reepham Division, Norfolk County Council)
The method of digging the trenches they have chosen would have a negative impact on farmland, increasing compaction and using a wider trench than is necessary. They could have chosen a lighter touch method as promoted by another applicant. The applicant has consistently not answered landowners questions and concerns. Has refused to engage with landowners on this subject, recently cancelling a meeting with affected landowners and three local MP's at short notice. They have had an arrogant approach to the consultation and appear to have done a tick box exercise so that they can claim they have attended x number of meetings. At these meetings they were ill prepared and couldn't or wouldn't answer residents concerns. On these grounds, until they can answer these basic questions, I think the application should be refused.”
