VIP Project Seventh Annual Report

The latest Visual Impact Provision (VIP) Annual Report is now available to download.

The seventh annual report for the Visual Impact Provision (VIP) project covers the activities that we have undertaken over the last year, our engagement work with a wide range of stakeholders and an overview of each of the four prioritised projects.

In Dorset, our site team are making great progress with construction as well as integrating themselves in the local community, showing ingenuity and the highest standards of engineering excellence to adapt to the surrounding environment.

Construction began in the Peak District in May 2021 and our Snowdonia project now has the planning consents it needs in place.

Work is well underway to develop the planning application and Ofgem submission for North Wessex Downs, and we are working with local experts to identify the best opportunities for biodiversity net gain.

The report documents progress of the VIP project from June 2020 to May 2021. You can download a copy of the report in English here, and in Welsh here.

We hope you will enjoy reading our annual report. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email the project’s community relations team at [email protected]..
