East Anglian Daily Times 3rd June 2019 , Growing concern is being voiced over plans for seven major energy projects
in part of east Suffolk – and the lack of coordinated policy to deal with
the concentration of development. Campaigners fear the massive schemes,
which could be built in 25 square miles of rural landscape, could cause
serious harm to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – and devastate the
area’s tourism industry.

plan for where vital infrastructure will be located. Graeme Murray,
chairman of the Anglian Energy Planning Alliance, said the group was not

future power needs, but wanted “proper planning” to ensure local
communities were treated fairly and precious landscape and habitat was
The area which will suffer most from being Suffolk’s “energy
hub” is bounded by Friston, Theberton, Thorpeness and Sizewell – small
communities which will see new power stations, wind farm substations, and
