Sizewell B Relocated Facilities. Having carefully scrutinised the supporting documents we strongly reject the assessment and conclusions drawn within the Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment, namely that: the susceptibility of the natural beauty and special qualities indicators are low and therefore that the Suffolk Coasts and Heaths AONB is of only medium sensitivity. We do not accept that the permanent effects are very limited as they only impact upon a small part of the AONB. We strongly refute the conclusion presented in table 7.10 which judges the scale of effects to be, at their highest level, only small with regard to landscape quality and negligible with regard to all other indicators including relative wildness, tranquility and heritage. The SPS strongly rejects the applicant’s overall conclusion that the magnitude of effects will be negligible and that the proposed development will have minimal significance (not significant) and on balance be neutral.
