Deadline 7a Submission - In relation to the Applicant's Change Request 2 The Aquind project leaders have shown ineptitude in their planning of the proposed route for high voltage cables and optic fibres under the Solent and Portsmouth to Lovedean. They have ignored the consequences for residents, human and wildlife, as well as the whole built and natural environment. The latest amendment seeking compulsory purchase of 2.5 Hectares of woodland is an example of inadequate planning and disrespect for the local countryside and wildlife. The Hampshire landscape is under threat so we need to preserve the natural habitat that remains.
