Investment in North Shropshire Electricity Network

SP Energy Networks is planning to invest £18m to support and enable growth across North Shropshire.

A new wood pole overhead line is now proposed to reinforce the electricity network.  The line will run from Oswestry substation, located at the A5/A495 roundabout, to Wem substation, located on Ellesmere Road on the western side of Wem.

This line will provide capacity to support development on land allocated for new jobs and homes in Oswestry, Whitchurch and Wem. It it will attract future business and housing investment across North Shropshire through to and beyond 2036. The new overhead line will reinforce the existing network by increasing the capacity available.
