The landscapes of Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk have survived unchanged for centuries. Even now, they are recognisable from the paintings of John Constable and Thomas Gainsborough.
But this landscape is currently threatened by hundreds of new electricity pylons which are neither necessary nor economically, socially or environmentally justifiable.
To fight against these plans, I am Chair of a group of MPs' called the Offshore Electricity Grid Task Force (OffSET). There is a viable alternative: offshore undersea cables, which would run down the coats of Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex and up the Thames Estuary, which we are fighting for.
I have received more correspondence on this than any other issue, and I will keep making the case for a different approach to the highest levels of the government. To be included on my email updates on this issue, please contact me at email@example.com and I will make sure you are kept informed of my work opposing the pylons.
