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).
