Aldeburgh is a Freeview Light transmitter covering a relatively small number of viewers. Its 3 multiplexes are all rated at 10kW, which is not at all considered 'high powered' considering that a main transmitter would have multiplexes radiated at 100kW or more, in some cases greater than 1 MW. Aldeburgh is intended to 'fill in' an area with poor reception from the main transmitter covering much, but not all, of the area.
