Following this first round of consultation, we will develop a detailed design and alignment for the new overhead line, including locations for towers, access routes and working areas.
We will publish a report summarising the feedback received in this first round of consultation and how this has influenced our proposals.
We will then carry out a detailed Environmental Impact Assessment and hold a second round of public consultation, so that people can give us their views on the detailed route alignment.
After considering feedback received in the second round of consultation, we will finalise our proposals and submit applications for consent to the Scottish Ministers.
The Scottish Ministers will then hold a final round of statutory consultation before making any decision on our applications.
