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.

National Grid ESO (NG ESO) has issued its final Phase 1 report, which assesses the most beneficial approaches to offshore grid networks in order to deliver better outcomes for consumers and coastal communities.
Executives from National Grid Plc meet government officials on Thursday to discuss how a growing tangle of projects offshore can be best connected to the network on land. At the moment, wind farms at sea are each linked individually with separate cables. Combining some of those links could cut the amount of new infrastructure needed in half.
