As a resident of Edgefield village which is in the area that this project will effect I am concerned that the environmental impact of this project is fully explored and understood before development is undertaken. I want to see that this impact is minimized as much as possible and that the local wildlife is disturbed as little as possible and the local residents are not blighted by noise or light pollution from the booster station. The planning of this project needs to take into account the disruption of large vehicles on small lanes and time frames need to be set to reduce this with the local population in mind rather than Orsted's costs. Similarly it is vital that environmentally friendly means of excavating for the cable are a priority in order to keep the integrity of the top soil and drainage systems that are within the cable corridor are appropriately moved.
