'Suffolk Under Threat' film explores energy developments threat to the Suffolk coast

Documentary filmmaker ZeroGravity films recently visited the Suffolk coast and were shocked by the plans for multiple energy projects in our rural area with its fragile coastline and natural, rugged AONB. They have produced this short film with contributions from a variety of members of the local community including representatives of SASES and SEAS.

This film powerfully brings home the destruction and permanent devastation to this area and the inadequacies of National Grid, Scottish Power and other offshore energy developers.

There are better options at existing substation locations and brownfield sites for the onshore development required to connect projects to the energy grid.

We hope you enjoy the film, please share with friends, family and followers. 

If you have time please write to Kwasi Kwarteng  (secretary.state@beis.com)

  • Tell Kwasi Kwarteng that he must seek a full review of alternative on shore locations for connecting National Grid and Scottish Power projects.
  • Tell Kwasi Kwarteng that the ‘cumulative impact’ of multiple energy projects on the Suffolk Coast & Heaths AONB must urgently be addressed. 
  • Tell Kwasi Kwarteng it is not okay to sacrifice the Suffolk countryside & AONB in order to connect energy projects to the grid.   
  • Encourage your family and friends to also write to Kwasi Kwarteng (at the Department for Business & Industrial Strategy). Ultimately, it is down to Mr Kwarteng to make the final decision to approve these projects as they are presented, or call for changes to the onshore proposals that so many feel are essential to save our AONB.
