National Grid - New Pylons

There is a new pylon development across parts of the east of England. There is a consultation about this project that the National Grid which member-councils may wish to provide responses to. This consultation will close on Thursday 16th June 2022.

This is a consultation by the National Grid on their proposal to build a new 400kV electricity transmission line over 180 km (affecting three counties) involving overhead lines and pylons. They have published a preferred route for their project but say in their consultation "the final locations will depend on any potential modifications, following feedback from this consultation."

To read the proposals of the East Anglia GREEN National Grid development, please see the summary document they have produced (5MB PDF) to provide residents with an introduction and project background information.
