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 is currently open. Feedback can be provided until 1st March 2021. To view the options consultation please see the substation consultation leaflet. Once the consultation has been completed and reviewed it is expected that a planning application will be submitted for the preferred site.
