The consultation by Vattenfall was flawed as they failed to explain why Zone 5 was excluded from the search zone.
The site chosen is situated on one of the highest points in the locality and with HVDC selected the housing buildings will be visible from many surrounding points. Tree planting will be total inadequate to mitigate this as these buildings are 20-25m high.
There are existing field drains that will be destroyed during the construction phase and no adequate study has been made of these or what the effect will be on flooding on adjacent land.
Vattenfall have failed to notify residents of their right to make representations under this scheme, I found out by "accident". How are residents supposed to comment if they are not made aware of their rights or the method to use.
