We waited specifically for a home in Necton to be closer to my husband Alan’s work. We finally found our dream home. It was a push to afford it but we managed. We moved the whole family away from the rat race in Birmingham and renovated our new home on the edge of Necton. We had been through the mill with [redacted] and thought here was an ideal place for [redacted] and local amenities. Then the whole Vattenfall project was dropped on us, potentially knocking thousands off the value of our home. (Many house owners since have had to lower their prices dramatically since this started). To have put all our hard earned savings into buying and renovating, to have that value undercut by the massive monstrosity being in such close proximity to our home is soul destroying. It is vast, ugly, potentially a lot higher than stated at first if they get the go ahead, and what harmful stuff what will this thing emit? There is a high population of children in this village. There’s the noise, the lighting at night, and what about years down the line, once the cables that run underground and have been humming away? They can’t tell us if it will affect us because they simply don't know.
