Public consultation

We consulted local people on our plans for Glenlee substation from Monday 12 March 2018 to Friday 06 April 2018, including a drop-in exhibition in New Galloway on Tuesday 13 March. The consultation is now closed.

We asked people for their views on our plans for Glenlee substation, including:

  • The proposed substation extension
  • Proposed road improvements and construction traffic routes
  • Landscape proposals
  • Other issues

What happens next?

Following the consultation, we carried out a detailed appraisal of possible alternative sites for the substation extension. You can find more information about this on the ‘substation extension’ page of this website.

We are now finalising our proposals, and we will produce a Pre-Application Consultation (PAC) Report detailing the feedback received and how this has been taken into account in the design. This report will accompany our planning application to Dumfries & Galloway Council, who will then hold their own public consultation on our plans.

Subject to receiving planning consent, work should start on site in 2019 and should finish in autumn 2022.
