East Anglia 1 (North) and East Anglia 2 Windfarms

We have responded to the stage 4 consultations on the offshore windfarms and the associated onshore infrastructure

The proposed turbines will be the tallest turbines worldwide and 3 enormous substations are planned in the countryside beside Friston, with 7 kms of cables being installed underground causing enormous disruption. Whilst supporting offshore wind generation, we have raised our concerns over the impacts on the landscape and heritage.

We have urged that an offshore ringmain is installed to take the power from all the offshore wind production around the East Anglian coast in a strategic planned way rather than allowing the the adhoc carving up of the countryside to continue.
