East Anglia Two and One North Offshore Wind Farm’s Public Consultation Exercise
Phase 3 Site Selection ended on 28 August.
The Aldeburgh Society has strongly objected to the present proposals to site the substation to support these windfarms inland away from the coast and to the choice of Zone 7 (Friston) in particular. As we said in our response to the earlier consultation, our focus is on the effect of your plans on the AONB in which Aldeburgh lies and we believe that the present proposals will severely damage the AONB and must be resisted at all costs. We also most strongly support the objections raised by the Friston community to be found at SASES.org.uk website particularly with respect to the height of the proposed installations and their impact on an existing rural community. The society's response is available HERE.

There is an appeal against the refusal to grant planning permission for the development of 43 houses at Brickfield Barns, Saxmundham Road, Suffolk. The result of this will be determined by Public Inquiry, to be held on 11 September 2018. The Society opposes the application; information on why, how to support us, and progress reports, can be found on our dedicated page.
Our Spring Party on the 18th May was a great evening; tickets sold out and a fabulous time was had by all. Thanks to the Red House for hosting us, to Rosa for helping out once again, and to Mel at the Aldeburgh Café for some truly wonderful canapés.
Special thanks go to the guides at the Red House who kindly took members on informal tours around the house.
A copy of the original letter to founding members of the Aldeburgh Society, which Sarah Bardwell read at the party, can be read here.
This series was among our most well-attended yet. The 2018/19 diary is currently in preparation; look at our Diary page for more information. Suggestions for speakers are warmly welcomed and can be communicated via our contact page.
