Connection to the National Grid should be done Offshore by Offshore Ring Main which I understand the National Grid agree is a possibility, thus no digging up of anywhere across the countryside would be necessary. This should be the way forward for all Offshore windfarms.

I am seriously concerned about the impact this project will have on Happisburgh as the landfall site:-
The running track goes right through the village cutting it in half and the outline management plan shows all but one road in the village will be stopped up; the remaining road is impacted by significant HGV movements. This is exacerbated by the fact that this is the first of two projects.
The cliffs at Happisburgh are extremely fragile and Vattenfall have failed to alleviate concern about the impact drilling under them may have particularly the potential risk of flooding to the Norfolk Broads.
