Dear Sirs

Re Appeal Ref: APP/X1545/W/20/3259477

I wish to make representation as follows concerning the above planning application appeal.

I believe that the refusal by Maldon District Council should stand on the following grounds: –

That Bradwell Power Generation Company Limited failed to adequately consider and mitigate for the accumulated noise and vibration of the proposed works in terms of the nearby residents, including the spiritual community of Othona, the historically and spiritually significant site of pilgrimage St Peters on the Wall, the Downhall residential home (housing vulnerable people), along with the nearby St Cedd’s primary school.

That the noise levels at 78 dB (as stated by the applicant) will be many times over The World Health Organisation’s guidelines and therefore, harmful to the health and wellbeing of residents.

That Bradwell Power Generation Company Limited has failed to adequately consider the health and wellbeing of residents in terms of their working hours and the impact these would have, particularly on young school children in terms of excessive noise exposure over long periods.

(Add here any impact the noise and vibration would have on you and your family/household personally)

That Bradwell Power Generation Company Limited failed to adequately consider and mitigate for the accumulated noise and vibration of the proposed works in terms of the sensitive ecology of the local area and the designated sites and protected species, including wildfowl, marine life and mammals.

(Add here any additional concerns you have personally about the impact the noise and vibration would have on the local ecology/environment)

That Bradwell Power Generation Company Limited failed to adequately consider and mitigate for any water pollution from the excavation and the effects on local waterways, including the protected areas and species related to the delicate eco system of the estuary and related waterways.

That Bradwell Power Generation Company Limited failed to adequately consider and mitigate for the protection of RAF Bradwell Bay, its remaining historic infrastructure and the Iron Age archaeology within its vicinity.

That Bradwell Power Generation Company Limited failed to adequately consider and mitigate for the overall loss of amenity that residential property very close to the works will suffer including noise, overlooking, light pollution, dust, vibration and late-night activities.

That Bradwell Power Generation Company Limited failed to adequately consider and mitigate for the overall loss of amenity that visitors and residents will suffer in respect to the open landscape, tranquillity, historical setting, spiritual sanctuary, leisure pursuits (swimming, fishing, walking, hiking, sailing, astronomy and bike riding et al.) along the Essex Coastal Path, local beaches, estuary and the surrounding area, in terms of noise, overlooking, dust, vibration, light pollution, extensive excavation and 8 meter high bunds.

(Add here any loss of amenity the works would have on you and your family/household personally)

(Add any other information you feel of personal relevance here).

In summary, I strongly feel that the developers Bradwell Power Generation Company Limited have wholly failed to meet their legal obligations in terms of this application, that MDC was right to refuse it on the grounds that they did and that this decision should therefore hold.

Yours sincerely
