SP Energy Networks submits planning application for Glenlee substation extension

SP Energy Networks has submitted a planning application to Dumfries and Galloway Council for its proposed extension to Glenlee electricity substation.

The extension is needed to accommodate the extra equipment required to connect and operate the new overhead lines proposed as part of the Kendoon to Tongland Reinforcement (KTR) Project.

SP Energy Networks held two rounds of public consultation on the Glenlee substation proposals and carried out a full Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) before submitting the application, which covers the proposed extension, road improvements, landscaping and temporary construction works.
