Here is the most recent update from Progress Power.
This Design Principles Statement sets out Design Principles for the Power Generation Plant, Above Ground Infrastructure and Electricity Connection Compound proposed by Progress Power.
It contains lots of information regarding the visual impact of the proposed plan and is worth a look.
Due to this being a National Infrastructure project decided by the Secretary of State, Eye Town Council and Suffolk County Council have had no power to ‘stop’ this project. On top of opposing the plans they have also applied great amounts of pressure to ensure that if it does go ahead the impact on the site and surrounding environment is as small as possible. It is expected that they will be forced to use the ‘more expensive for them’ but far lower impact Gas Insulated Switchgear in the substation. A decent compensatory ‘community fund’ has been another area of key effort and we hope that if the unavoidable does happen the deal Eye gets will be fair and even beneficial. The final decision is expected next summer.
