National Grid’s Decision

On Tuesday 29th May, National Grid announced their proposal that two sections of the Bramford to Twinstead 400kv connection are to be installed underground. The two sections are the Dedham Vale AONB (Area E) and the Stour Valley (Area G) with all of the remaining areas across the Suffolk countryside being described as of lower landscape value by NG. More pylons are proposed for these areas.

Western areas of National Grid’s proposed transmission corridor. 


This initial response from SVU focusses on this area.

The closing date for the current consultation on 

NG’s undergrounding proposals is Friday 27th July 2012.
