I intend to notify of my objections to this plan. Apologies my RR didn’t contain enough information, the form wasn’t clear - I thought I would be asked for more details at a later stage. Anyway, I massively object to this plan. I live at [ ], right in the middle of the planned 66 week disruption. Our house faces the skate park - I would like to know what plans there are to replace the facilities? This stupid idea will cause major disruption to the local flora and fauna, the allotment owners will suffer and likely lose years of hard work and dedication. Why oh why do we need electricity from France? What about renewable energy sources? What about investing in something home grown? This city is massively over populated, the proposal involves tunnelling along a major road, need I go on? It is a recipe for disaster. Interesting also how the owner of Acquind has thrown loads of money at the Tories, a party the majority of Portsmouth South did not vote for. What is this ludicrous idea costing? What will France be charging the UK for its electricity?!
