We have lived in St Andrews Lane Necton for over 22 years now. From the rear of our bungalow we look out onto open farmland. However the other side of the hedgerow - and in our sights - we have the Dudgeon Substation. We have had noise and light pollution night and day. Apparently vital maintenance work needs to be carried out from 13th August and there will be noise and light pollution after daylight hours.
I am now in my 80's am unwell and have recently started kidney dialysis. I certainly do not need the stress of knowing that there is a possibility that at least 100 acres of this precious farmland is under consideration for the Vattenfall/Boreas Substations.
This should not be allowed. We need this precious farmland for our Country to be self-sufficient and this land should not be concreted over and lost forever. When this land is decommissioned will there be food processing plants, etc. for our grandchildren to view?
Vattenfall have not been open and honest in their 'Consultations' i.e. how many, the size. Have chosen not to consider more suitable sites away from our village. Have apparently chosen to ignore the fact that following the unmanned plane crash in Necton the land should not be disturbed because of the high pollution levels. Therefore the very wide cable corridors they plan - not only for this area - but for the whole of our County should not be allowed to happen.
