Therese has consistently been working with campaign groups like SEAS and SASES to raise concerns about the impact of excessive energy infrastructure on the Suffolk coast and was pleased to be their guest speaker at a public meeting on Friday in Saxmundham.
Therese said: "No longer being part of the government, I can speak far more freely and loudly in my opposition to the proposed onshore infrastructure and support the connection in Bradwell.
Whilst it is now likely that the Nautilus project, which was also planned for the Suffolk coast, will be connected via the Isle of Grain, potentially from a modular offshore grid combining North Falls and Five Estuaries. This should also be considered for Lionlink and Sealink as part of the Offshore Coordination Support Scheme.
I will continue my campaign to try and make that happen by continuing to engage with the Secretary of State and the Energy Minister both individually and through the Offshore Electricity Grid Task Force that I helped set up with other East Anglian MPs - and as I’m not now in government, feel unleashed to accelerate this."
