Dumfries and Galloway Strategic Reinforcement Project


SP Energy Networks received more than 1,600 responses to the first round of consultation on the Dumfries and Galloway Strategic Reinforcement Project. 

Given the extension to the consultation period and the number of responses received, we want to ensure we have fully considered all the issues raised before reaching a decision on which corridors and siting areas will be taken forward to the next stage.  As a result of this, we are now planning to publish the report on the first round of consultation in January 2016.  Prior to extending the consultation period by 5 weeks, we had planned to publish the report before the end of 2015.

The report will be published on the project website and hard copies will be made available at local libraries and information points. We will also send a leaflet summarising the consultation report and next steps to every address within a kilometre of the preferred route corridor and substation siting areas.
