When Vattenfall first came to Necton with a presentation they led me to believe that we would not see or hear their substations, and that Boreas would be a much smaller addition. I have since come to realise that we will see and hear them, because due to being DC they will be so incredibly massive, as Boreas is now to be the same size as Vanguard! Vattenfall admit that the structures are too big for the area, and can’t be mitigated by planting, so why are they still coming?
The construction noise alone, which could last ten years, was bad enough with Dudgeon, as was the light pollution. This will be several times worse! We will be going from a lovely agricultural village to an industrial site. We already have one substation and certainly do not need three.
