We live less than 200 metres from an original proposed site for a massive AC Relay Station, yet were left out of many important consultations and our home was not included at all in the publicity about affected neighbours and the proposed locations sent Norfolk wide. Although Vattenfall have promised they are now seeking permission for a DC system, meaning there is no need for an AC Relay Station beside our home, we would still like to follow the planning process and ensure there is no deviation from what we have read will be applied for, either pre or post planning consent.
Secondly, the cable route is still close and our only road access will be heavily used for the infrastructure; for where the cables arrive onshore; and the digging and laying along a long section of the cable route. These are small, rural, quiet roads and not designed for such heavy use or large equipment. It is a peaceful, unspoilt, rural, agricultural area, with fragile buildings and we are worried about the impact of such a major, long term project, (noise, working hours, equipment, routes, damage, reinstatement, etc).
