Eighty five Norfolk Parish Councils came together to plea to the Energy Secretary to refuse planning consent for what would be the largest offshore wind farm in the world.
They are not against the principle of Offshore energy, in fact they are very supportive of it, but their concern focuses on the disruption that will be caused to large tracts of Norfolk.
Connecting the turbines to the National Grid will require 60 kilometres of underground cables dug into a trenche up to 80 metres wide
This will run from Happisburgh on the coast to a new substation at Necton.
And Ridlington is right in it's path.
