Plans for routing of new electricity cables

Bressingham and Fersfield Parish Council encourage you to study the Consultation for a new high voltage network reinforcement between Norwich, Bramford and Tilbury and to submit your response. Full details and Response Form are here:

You will see that two of the proposed routes pass close by Bressingham.

East Anglia GREEN route 1

Whilst our existing high voltage electricity network in East Anglia has been sufficient until today, it doesn’t have the capability needed to reliably and securely transport all the energy that will be connected by 2030 while working to the required standards. The new network will play a vital role in delivering electricity efficiently, reliably, and safely and will support the UK’s move to reduce carbon emissions.

The reinforcement would comprise mostly overhead line (including pylons and conductors – the ‘line’ part), underground cabling through the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), works at existing substations at Norwich, Bramford and Tilbury and a new 400 kV connection substation in the Tendring district.

We will be holding an information event with you, more details will follow shortly.
