Update on NG’s Provision Project removing pylons between Postlip and Dowdeswell

Update on NG’s Provision Project removing pylons between Postlip and Dowdeswell

Over the past two years National Grid have been consulting with stakeholders and the local community while developing their proposals for 18 pylons and around 7km of overhead line replaced with underground cables. They are now nearing completion of the planning applications for the which are due to be submitted in Spring 2024.

National Grid will be hosting a public drop-in information event in January in Winchcombe, for the public to come and speak to the project team to hear about the plans that will form the content of the planning application as they reach the final stages.

The proposed underground cable route now differs from the version shown in the summer after extensive survey work and feedback from local people, stakeholders and landowners.

The events will be taking place at Abbey Fields Community Centre, Winchcombe on Saturday 27 January, 10:00am-3:00pm
