I am opposed to the proposal for a further two substations to be built at Necton. I live very close to the existing substation and have a very clear idea of the intrusion into many peoples lives that this proposal will cause ,during and after construction.
My main personal concerns are with the massive extension of the National Grid part of the project ,do the NG have to follow the same rules as private companies as regards noise levels ,light pollution and proper visual screening of the development? The proposed NG extension would reach very close to the A47 and indeed our property and this would not allow enough land for adequate screening of the site. This substation would be very visible and distracting to drivers on an already overstretched and risky area of the A47. I have been disappointed with the lack of information provided by consents solutions and vattenfall concerning screening and noise / light levels during and after construction .I have also not yet received an explanation as to why our property is part of the vattenfall 'corridor' .
