Norfolk Vanguard

I am objecting to the proposed Vanguard and Boreas substations to be built at Necton for these reasons.
1. we are a small village and will have 3 substations (70 acreas in all) on our doorstep, which will be unsightly on the landscape, cause disruption for several years, cause traffic chaos, disturb the peaceful nature of the area, cause light pollution, noise pollution. House prices have fallen already. Flooding is a serious concern. Wildlife and farming are affected.
2. Vattenfall have not communicated honestly and given accurate facts.
3. Other suitable sites have been put forward but ignored as possible alternatives
4. The proposed amount of energy to be produced is in no way proportionate to the extreme disruption across Norfolk.
