Consultation & engagement

Local opinion has influenced major aspects of the project; including the selection of the route corridor (a broad width of land within which overhead line and/or underground cables can be sited) and identifying two areas where we believe the high cost of putting cables underground can be justified. These underground sections run through Dedham Vale AONB and the Stour Valley and make up more than a quarter of the route (around 8km).     

For details on previous consultations please visit The story so far (Stage 1).   

You can also view information on Community Forums, Thematic Groups and other meetings related to this project.  Notes from all these meetings can be found on the Meeting notes page. 

You can find further information about why we need to build a new connection in our revised Project Need Case for the East Anglia regionOur approach to the design and routeing of new electricity transmission lines will explain more about how we go about this.
