Letter Guide

Write to Scottish Power Renewables –
Send your comments and views regarding the 2 proposed options for onshore development: Grove Wood, Friston and the new ‘alternative option’ Broom Covert, Sizewell.

You can address your letter for the attention of:

Scottish Power Renewables EA2 & EA1N

Include the reference below at the top of your letter/email:
EA2 / EA1N Substations PINS Ref: EN010078 EN010077 

Express how you feel about the two proposed options for onshore development, ‘substation & grid connection’ locations. Scottish Power Renewables have made concessions by including land near Sizewell as a second option. Both options will see unnecessary damage to the AOBN popular footpaths, tracks and access, however locating at Friston would require the longest cable corridor, impacting on local communities in: Thorpeness, Sizewell, Aldringham, Knodishall & Friston. 

Things to consider:

  • Are you satisfied: enough information has been provided; effective, sufficient visual mock-ups of substations.  
  • How appropriate is site selectionFriston vs. the alternative site; use of land nearer the coast; use of land within the AONB; EDF land.
  • Do you feel SPR are addressing the communities & stakeholders concerns about onshore development: Have the questions you have asked been answered, have you received requested information from Scottish Power Renewables?
Things you could also include:
  • How appropriate is site selection: Friston vs. the alternative site; use of land nearer the coast; use of land within the AONB; EDF land.
  • How the substation/s will affect you: quality of life; visual impact; house prices; open spaces, continued access to footpaths/country walks, community life.
  • Road infrastructure & access: Poor access, country roads and lanes, not suitable for wide or heavy construction equipment, would be dangerous to other vehicles, cyclists and walkers.
    Road improvements essential before any industrial development is considered anywhere.
  • Construction of the cable route and substations: short cable route to ‘alternative option’ at Sizewell vs. 10km route to get to the Friston option. Noise, dust and light pollution; tourism; habitat loss; environmental impact.
