Norwich to Tilbury Pylon Consultation

National Grid has launched a further consultation regarding its proposals which are to build approximately 184 km of new electricity transmission reinforcement between Norwich and Tilbury. This will be made up mostly of overhead line and pylons, along with some underground cables and a new 400 kV substation.

This further consultation opens on 10th April 2024 and closes on 18th June 2024.

As well as the website, there will be some face to face consultation events where you can go along and view the  proposals as well as speaking to someone from the organisation.
