Here are some of the project milestones:

2015


Our first round of consultation on the preferred corridor and preferred substation siting areas for the original DGSR Project took place between June and August.

2016

Following a review, the project scope was reduced. Having considered the feedback from the first round of consultation, we published our conclusions and our proposed corridor for the KTR Project.

Our second round of non-statutory public consultation, on preferred routes for the KTR Project, concluded in December.

2017

Having considered the feedback from the second round of consultation, we identified a proposed route 200m wide for the overhead line in March. Following this we have now identified detailed alignments for the new overhead lines, including potential locations for steel towers, wood poles, working areas and construction access points.

Our third round of public consultation runs from November 20, 2017, until January 26, 2018.

2018

Submission of planning application for Glenlee substation extension in January.

In Spring we will publish our Feedback on 3rd round of consultation report.

We will be continuing our environmental and technical surveys to inform the EIA process throughout 2018.

2019

We plan to submit applications for consent under Section 37 of the Electricity Act 1989, to be determined by the Scottish Ministers. These applications will be accompanied by our Environmental Impact Assessment Report which will cover all aspects of the project. This will be followed by formal statutory consultation conducted by the Scottish Government.

2023


Subject to consents being granted, we aim to have the Kendoon to Tongland 132kV Reinforcement (KTR) Project up-and-running by 2023.
