Brighton’s waves threatened again – please help to protect our waves

Even though the value of the waves at Brighton Marina (a local and regional resource) are recognised by the local City Council, the proposed Rampion offshore windfarm could reduce wave height by nearly a quarter. This shocking prediction has emerged in a revised draft Environmental Statement published by the proposers of the windfarm, Eon.

Surfers Against Sewage have swung into action and asked for an urgent meeting with Eon to discuss their findings, ways of reducing them (such as the number and location of turbines and how they are designed) and for the Environmental Statement to recognise the socio-economic value of the waves.

It would help if all surfers – local, regional, national and international – could download the letter that SAS have written, add a personal touch, include your name and address and send it to Eon at But hurry, it needs to be there by 8th August. Thanks, and pass this message on.
