The application has many concerns namely: impact on local environment during the building project, with hundreds of lorries on small country roads, the current road proposal is poorly thought through and many more roads will be impacted as lorries find alternative routes; carbon footprint of a 12 year building project; impact on small Rural communities of 1500 workers in a village of barely 100 residents; impact on local towns of influx of workers; wrecking the SSI area next to world renowned Minsmere RSPB site; light pollution impact on birds, animals etc. Additionally the cost to the British people for a technology that will be out of date by the time it is constructed and it will cost twice as much which the British taxpayer will pay for, and the land will be contaminated for 100s of years as Dounreay is for 330 years. What a legacy for our children.
