Re: location of HVDC Converter / HVAC Substation by A47 with entry from B1113 - I wish to object to proposed location as...

(a) the proposal is sited on productive farmland rising gently from B1113;

(b) the B1113 is a rural road through villages and this will appear like a factory complex, detracting from the rural landscape of the area;

(c) it is very close to 2 historic buildings, Gowthorpe Manor (of great historic significance) and Mangreen Hall and will detract from both from some viewpoints;

(d) this could/should be relocated to a site adjacent to/north of the Norwich Main National Grid Substation which is currently being quarried so the Converter/Substation buildings could be hidden from view and there is excellent access from the A140.
