Hi, my name is Fiona and we are a community group in coastal Suffolk raising money to promote offshore solutions to carry wind power to brownfield sites closer to London and demand. Current plans are ill conceived and irrational, needlessly damaging our rare and unique countryside along the Heritage Coast.
Suffolk Energy Action Solutions ( SEAS) is an umbrella group representing all communities from Reydon/ Southwold to Aldeburgh including Walberswick, Saxmundham, Leiston, Snape and the villages threatened along cable trench routes and Friston, the site designated for the first super hub.
SEAS was set up in July 2019. It has a Finance Audit Committee who supervise expenditure and priorities. Monies raised to date include for specialist environmental studies, air pollution, wildlife, advocacy, leaflets, posters, website, social media, video films. We need to keep going, not give up now. This is a pivotal moment as we now have to commission an opinion poll, new films, a further quantitative assessment of the £2billion cost savings to be gained from taking the wind power directly from offshore wind farms to brownfield sites such as West Grain and Bradwell. This requires more joined up thinking from National Grid ESO( FSO) and DESNZ Ministers Coutinho and Bowie. It’s the smarter way forward, what Belgium’s Elia has already implemented since 2021. Britain needs to catch up.
Cable trenches the width of the M11 motorway constructed over four years and multiple 26 m high concrete monoliths, the interconnectors, taking up 12 acres each constructed over 12 years will sever wildlife corridors permanently and rob us of what is most precious. And zero jobs related to these projects for this area which is dependent on Nature based tourism.
SEAS asks you to support this cause now
because we value what is priceless.
