The amount of housing means that improvements are needed to the utilities. The funding will enable an upgrade to the electricity supply to ensure that there is enough capacity and provision of foul drainage.
As part of the utility upgrades, a new electricity substation is required. Initial work has been undertaken to inform the most appropriate location for this. A consultation on the location of the proposed substation has been carried out. Feedback will now be reviewed and a planning application will be submitted for the preferred site. The options within the consultation can be seen in the substation consultation leaflet.
