To rip out a km of mature hedges and trees is not environmentally friendly,
nor is Vattenfall destroying the landscaping that Dudgeon put in to mitigate
their substation. In my opinion Vattenfall have shown that they only care
about making money and not about the environment, otherwise they wouldn't be
chasing such an inefficient design, whereby they churn up far more land than
they need to. They have given no regard to dangerous land contamination and
even less to the comments of residents. There are several alternatives to
cabling half-way across Norfolk (literally) for each substation, and
allowing Orsted and Vattenfall to cross cables at Reepham shows no sense on
the part of the National Grid.
