The Secretary of State decides to set a new date for determination of the Norfolk Vanguard windfarm DCO. This is the second Norfolk windfarm application to be delayed, the first was Hornsea 3 in early October. This is a pan Norfolk Suffolk Essex issue and we should be joining together in our efforts to ask the Government to stop, re-think, invest in the country’s future energy wind source by building an offshore RingMain and preserve our countryside for future generations. See Letter
Huge electrical substations for Scottish Power Renewables / Iberdrola (SPR).
Massive electrical interconnectors for National Grid (NG).
Further electrical windfarm infrastructures for Galloper & Greater Gabbard.
AND making the cumulative effect even worse we also have a Giant twin-reactor nuclear power station for Électricité de France (EDF).
SEAS is in favour of wind energy farms. SEAS is against the current proposed plans for the delivery of that wind power.
The Government needs to reassess the current plans to take account of the inevitable economic and environmental harm to East Suffolk which will cause untold hardship for its inhabitants.
The benefits WILL NEVER outweigh the devastation and destruction caused by these projects. They will have a detrimental impact on local environment, roads, country lanes, tourism and businesses.
A “NO-GO ZONE” will be created in an area of untouched natural beauty.
This random siting of clean and renewable energy is not only happening here but in other parts of the country.
OUR COUNTRYSIDE IS NOT RENEWABLE
Unless we take action now, our precious, irreplaceable landscapes and rural communities will be lost for future generations. And with it will come enormous economic hardship. All because the Government did not fully consider the impact.
The Government will only pay attention if each of us, with our friends and families write personally expressing our own views on what this means to you. Demand that the Secretary of State take action to prevent this wilful destruction. Every communication will count, no matter how short.
Please take the time to make a difference. Let’s do clean energy properly, share on social media and write to the Secretary of State.
SEAS are asking supporters to use Instagram, Facebook and Twitter to ask their friends and family to join in. We need over 10,000 emails sent to the Secretary of State BEIS to call for a PUBLIC INQUIRY. Please help achieve that target and make the Government take notice of the devastating impact on our environment from the cumulative impact and ill-conceived plans for onshore substations and interconnectors. We need a National Transmission Infrastructure Strategy for offshore wind delivery.
