Project Update – November 2018
SP Energy Networks (SPEN) has been considering the feedback received from key stakeholders, landowners and communities in relation to the third round of consultation which closed in January 2018. As with the two previous rounds of consultation, SPEN intend to publish a ‘Summary of Feedback’ report for this consultation which will confirm the overhead line alignments that will be progressed to the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process. SPEN aim to publish this report in early 2019.
Following the publication of the third round Summary of Feedback report, SPEN will commence with the full EIA for the Project and aim to submit the Section 37 consent applications to the Scottish Ministers in Summer 2019.
