Electricity substation update

Work is being undertaken to inform the design of the proposed substation; a planning application will be submitted for the preferred site in due course. To view the draft layout of the site, please view the Substation Layout Plan.

The layout of the substation has been informed by information provided by Western Power Distribution.  It is located on the western portion of the site to provide separation from the existing overhead cables, which must stay in place until the substation is built. The intention is for the overhead cables to be relocated underground once the substation has been delivered.
