AQUIND Interconnector

I am writing to you concerning the proposed route of the Aquind Interconnector. I object to the need to dig up some of our most wild and valued leisure spaces, thus preventing access to these rare spots on our densely populated island,and creating havoc for so many months across our city. This government should be looking at home grown and sustainable green energy to protect our already polluted city and indeed across the country. I don’t want our children breathing in toxic air on their way to school and when they are out playing in our ‘green’ spaces. Furthermore if the proposed works are to go ahead on the ‘Eastern Road’ this will cause traffic gridlock across the city, as this is one of only 3 main roads on and off the island. I object to the rather surreptitious dispersal of piecemeal information, instead of a clear consultation with residents. I object to the assumption that this is a ‘done deal’, with powers taken from our local counsellors, further muffling our voices, opinions and possible disagreements with the proposed route. I ask that you please consider resiidents voices in this matter, as it is not right that such a huge project should go ahead without open and honest discussions with the people who live along this route. Many Thanks Anna Carter
