Do you know what's about to hit Coastal Suffolk? "A No-Go Zone"

Suffolk Energy Action Solutions

Many of us may not be aware of the massive scale of industrialisation that will come along with up to six new electrical substations or interconnectors and 60m wide cable trenches gouging out the countryside.  This threat to our coastal area is a national issue being replicated elsewhere in the UK, most notably in Suffolk, Norfolk, along The Wash and Humber Coast; and off Cumbria and North Wales.   CALL FOR A REVIEW, A PUBLIC  INQUIRY.   Ask for brownfield sites in the short-term and offshore transmission solutions - a ring main (ORM) or island hubs, learning from other countries such as Holland and Germany.

A group of British celebrities including comedian Griff Rhys Jones slam 'needless destruction' as debate grows over UK offshore wind links.

There are currently SEVEN energy projects proposed to be built over the next 12-15 years in the beautiful Suffolk Coastal countryside.


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.  

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.
