East Anglia GREEN proposals

The CLA is establishing a working group for those members affected by the plans

National Grid recently held a consultation for its plan for the East Anglia Green Energy Enablement (GREEN) project. The proposal is to build a new high voltage network reinforcement between Norwich, Bramford and Tilbury.

The plans, that were out for consultation until mid-June, have raised concerns amongst a number of farming and landowning members who are worried about the potential impact of the new National Grid project, involving the construction of a new electricity transmission line.

The CLA has responded to the consultation and believes that alternatives to intrusive overhead pylons have not been adequately considered by National Grid. We are also establishing a CLA Working Group for those members affected.

If you would like to join the CLA’s East Anglia GREEN Working Group, please contact CLA East Regional Surveyor Alison Provis by email: east@cla.org.uk or call 01638 590429.
