Our proposals for Section 10, from the A620 to Fledborough, are explained in detail in the Corridor Preliminary Routeing and Siting Study and in overview in our Project Background Document.

The section runs from the A620 south to a point approximately 1 km from the existing High Marnham 400 kV substation. In this section the graduated swathe is routed to avoid the villages of North and South Wheatley, Sturton le Steeple, North Leverton and South Leverton and Treswell to the north, and the settlements of Woodbeck, East Drayton and Darlton further to the south.

The swathe splits into alternative eastern and western paths in two locations; between South Wheatley and Treswell, avoiding properties and farm buildings, and to the south of Woodbeck, avoiding a small number of properties on Main Street and Retford Road, East Drayton.

The route crosses a 132 kV overhead electricity distribution line in this section and the Sheffield to Lincoln rail line.

Thank you for all the feedback received about this section of the route. We will explain how feedback received at the first stage of consultation has shaped and influenced our plans when we present more detailed proposals at our next round of consultation in 2024.
