The Yorkshire GREEN Project
The Yorkshire GREEN project proposes new infrastructure including substations, overhead lines, underground cables and cable sealing end compounds (where underground cables meet overhead lines). It would also include work to upgrade the existing transmission system, including some installation of new equipment at existing sites.

Application for development consent
Having submitted our development consent application on 15 November 2022, the Planning Inspectorate, on behalf of Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, has now accepted our application for examination.
The Project will now progress through a period of examination by an appointed Examining Authority. The Examining Authority will then prepare a recommendation report and submit it to the Secretary of State who will make a decision on whether to grant development consent.
A summary of this process can also be found on the ‘next steps’ page of this website.
We would like to thank everyone who took part in our consultations, including our ongoing landowner consultation throughout the pre-application period. Our refined plans for Yorkshire GREEN were submitted to the Planning Inspectorate on 15 November 2022. The Project has now entered the examination period and more information, along with all documents – including a Consultation Report which summarises all of our consultation activities – have been published on the Planning Inspectorate’s website.
