1) Information about these works has only recently been posted on fixtures in and around Milton Common. They are severely weather damaged. They are very hard to see. I have spoken to a number of users of the routes and they have not seen these notices. 2) In respect of the above and the very short time frame (2nd Jan 2020 to 19th Feb 2020) whereby stakeholders have been given opportunity to respond and digest the extensive plans - this period is too short and not enough information has been given. 3) The cable is unnecessary and will not benefit the area it is supposed to serve. We have not been told of the source of the electricity coming through the cable (e.g. is it coming from Nuclear Power, Coal Power or renewable sources?) 4) There will likely be extensive disruption to transport links. Especially to cycling routes that are relied upon by members of the public of daily commutes. 5) Not enough is known about the disruption to wildlife - in particular the protected area around Langstone Harbour.
