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 Tuesday 15 November 2022, the Examining Authority, on behalf of the Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero, has now concluded its examination process.
Following this period of examination – which closed on Friday 15 September 2023 – the Examining Authority now has a further three months to prepare a recommendation report. This report will be submitted to the Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero, who then has a further three months to make a decision on whether to grant development consent.
Once a decision has been made, further information will be made available on this website. Should consent be granted, we will provide further information on the construction process and timescales.
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 throughout the pre-application period, along with the examination period in 2023. After submitting our plans for Yorkshire GREEN to the Planning Inspectorate on 15 November 2022, the Project went through a period of examination, which concluded in September 2023.
More information, along with all documents relating to the application and examination process, can be found on the Planning Inspectorate’s website.
