Petition to reject National Grid's Pylon Proposals for Suffolk/Essex

We who sign this petition reject national Grids proposals to further blight the East Anglian countryside with yet more pylons. We believe the right way to transmit the projected output from the new gas powered power stations at New Holland and Kings Lyn,the planned renewably generated power from the east coast windfarms and the proposed new nuclear generators proposed for Sizewell is not simply " by underground cables". We believe that a multi faceted approach is needed which comprises three parts that: eliminate the need for new pylon lines works toward a completely pylon free landscape is compatible with new and international developments in energy distribution is in the best interests of the entire nation They are:- To increase the capacity of the existing pylon lines (as is included in NG's proposals) as a short term expedient to transmit the power from the proposed New Holland and Kings Lyn Gas Powered Power Stations To connect the proposed Sizewell Nuclear Reactors along with the proposed east coast Wind Farms to London via the Thames Estuary by undersea cabling. To bury underground the existing local distribution lines along with all other local distribution cables.
