I live within the area & feel the project is far too big for our area causing much disruption & permanent damage to our area of 'Outstanding natural beauty (AONB). Tourism will be permanently damaged which will have a significant economic impact on the are. Other concerns include: * Environmental impact & coastal erosion - strange to build here where there is strong evidence of coastal erosion. The project will be catastrophic for wildlife & the RSPB site (Minsmere) will be devastated & there will be a loss of habitats in the area e.g. birds, animals & plants. * Transport - there will be huge disruption to our roads for many years whilst this project is being built. Congestion & pollution will cause much damage to an area that has limited major roads. I understand the Government wishes to reduce carbon emissions etc. The project will be built at a time when there are other energy projects taking place in the are e.g. offshore wind farms etc. There are many more concerns and overall the cost benefit analysis of this project suggests it should not proceed. I wish to state that I consider this project to be totally unsuitable for this area.
