Postcards and emails update
On Wednesday 19 November SEAS campaigners delivered by hand the first batch of 700 signed postcards calling for a public inquiry to Andrea Leadsom, Secretary of State for BEIS.
Other postcards have been sent by individuals as well as hundreds of emails and letters.
We are delighted with all these individual personal messages to the Secretary of State. They are making a difference. We are hearing a change in tone and tune from the official lines. Thank you to all campaigners.
SPR’s proposed cable trenches would sever the wildlife corridor which stretches along 30 miles of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB.

This SPR/National Grid application with its overwhelming negative affect on the area should not be allowed to go ahead. This is short-sighted short term expediency. It is not planning - in all senses of the word - and I submit that the application should be rejected or put on hold until a different proper solution is found
