This will be the biggest onshore infrastructure for offshore wind farms in
the world ie 3.6GW
Vattenfall’s documents (PEIR Chapter 29 Table 29.18) says ‘scale and mass
would appear at variance with the scale and character of the rural
landscape. Despite extent of planting would be insufficient to mitigate the
effect within the operational period.'
It is also on one of the highest points in this area. Each of the two
substations will be the size of 10 Norwich Castle Keeps, both in height and
width, so in total 20 Castle Keeps. And that’s without the 1/3 of a mile of
National Grid substations, which will increase from 4 acres to 22. And in
doing so they will dig out a km of mature trees and hedging. These type of
projects seem to be able to run rampage of planning issues that would stop
anything else in its tracks.
It's recently been discovered that they're going to dig right through
possible radioactive substance from an F16 that crashed here. They don't
seem to know or care anything about it. How can they be allowed to continue
without a proper investigation?
