SEAS Meeting with Suffolk County Council

Feb 21, 2024 | Consultations, News, Politics

On 7 February there was a SEAS Meeting with Suffolk County Council, about SCC’s unsatisfactory response to the Sealink consultation and the recent National Grid ESO East Anglia Study Roundtable discussions, with Councillor Richard Rout, Phil Watson (Strategic Energy Projects Manager) and Graham Gunby (National Infrastructure Manager).

Our major concerns were about SCC’s failure to object robustly at this stage to Sealink’s plans and their lack of concern for the economic decline that will accompany the seven energy projects currently planned for our area. In addition, there’s a distinct lack of action regarding monitoring of peak time traffic flows, when it will clearly be a problem with roads likely to be gridlocked.
