We will continue to work closely with landowners and occupiers to plan and deliver the project.

We will ensure all parties are kept as up to date as possible as the project progresses and we encourage them (or their representatives) to liaise with us as they feel is necessary. 

The project is currently at its initial stages of route feasibility, non-intrusive walkover surveys and undertaking third party consultation. We have identified all parties who we believe may be affected by the project based on Land Registry Data and are seeking to identify parties whose land interests are unregistered. If we have made contact to inform you that you are considered as a potential affected party at this stage, you should have received a:

  • project letter 
  • Survey Access Licence 
  • landowner questionnaire 
  • National Grid payment schedules and survey factsheet

The project would primarily run through agricultural land and will not be routed through private gardens. Some surveys may be required in areas beyond the route corridor (once it is determined) for the purpose of gaining a greater understanding of local habitats and how they might be impacted by the project. There is no intention to carry out surveys in private houses or gardens; these surveys are primarily in agricultural land and we will always work with landowners to seek voluntary access for surveys.

As part of our wider project commitments, we will also be working to deliver initiatives to enhance biodiversity. We welcome feedback from landowners and occupiers.

If you own or occupy land which you feel may be affected by our proposals and would like to talk to our land agents, Dalcour Maclaren, please contact them at [email protected] or on 01285 425 362.
