In my view the proposed site is unsuitable due to the threats of rising sea levels, coastal erosion and likely effect on the coastline further south and north, with added frequency of storm surges due to climate change. The perceived benefits are outweighed by these risks and the threat to waste storage. Allied to this unsuitability is the impact on the SSI, and the AONB and the importance of the charcter of the area and its wildlife, rare species together with the long-term damage likely to affect the local economy which is essentially dependent on tourism and the beauty and relative isolation of this part of the region. Short-tetm economic benefits will not compensate. Proposed mitigation is inadequate.
