The Visual Impact Provision (VIP) project represents a major opportunity to conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife, and environmental heritage within our most protected landscapes.
The VIP project makes use of a provision by Ofgem to carry out work that reduces the impact of existing transmission lines in English and Welsh Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) and National Parks.
At National Grid we are passionate about playing our part in conserving and enhancing the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the landscape.
The most important task for us is to use this provision to achieve the maximum enhancement to our nation’s precious landscapes while avoiding unacceptable environmental impacts.
To ensure that we get this right and maximise the potential of the Visual Impact Provision project, National Grid is working closely and collaboratively with stakeholders.
