SEAS Campaign
Information

SEAS and supporters have worked hard over the last six months sending letters, emails, post cards to Andrea Leadsom who called a Review.  We felt we were being heard.  Now we have a new Secretary of State ALOK SHARMA and we need to make him aware of our concerns.



WHY WRITE

WHY WRITE?

The cumulative effect of 7 energy projects with more following on is just not viable in such a small area of the country. This graph shows the timeline of the projects, how they overlap and will take up to 15 years to complete, not taking into account future projects.

Massive projects such as Scottish Power Renewables (SPR) Wind Farms have to go through many stages of the Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) process to obtain planning permission.  SPR's recent Development Consent Order (DCO) application for EA1N and EA2 has been "Accepted" by the Planning Inspectorate (PINS).

SO CAN I STILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

Yes, The Secretary of State may call a halt to the planning process at any point to carry out a full inquiry or review.  SEAS urge you to write to the Secretary of State and call for A REVIEW, A PUBLIC INQUIRY into offshore wind energy off the Suffolk coast and to rethink a more sustainable strategy for onshore connections, including the development of an offshore ring main.


SEAS believe that the Secretary of State should do this sooner rather than later because it is now urgently required across the county.


SEAS believes that there are flaws in both the current system of transmission infrastructure/delivery of offshore energy
and the consultation process

LACK OF A STRATEGIC PLAN FOR TRANSMISSION INFRASTRUCTURE

THE PUBLIC CONSULTATION PROCESS IS A SHAM

It is time to protest against these ill-conceived, brutal plans, and endorse offshore solutions with a NATIONAL OFFSHORE TRANSMISSION 
INFRASTRUCTURE
, taking wind energy to established industrial sites such as the Thames Estuary, Newcastle, Liverpool, amongst others.  Offshore hubs, Ring Mains and artificial islands are some of the alternative options along with brownfield sites.
