Mid Wales Connection - Connecting wind farms through Mid Wales & Shropshire

At our previous consultation, we announced a draft route and a proposed site for the substation. Since then, we’ve continued to consider your feedback and progress with our assessments.

We’re currently working towards a design for a proposed connection, including a proposed route and substation, which we’ll present for comment at our next consultation.

Our latest community bulletin (autumn 2014), includes information on how we’re developing our proposals for transport and temporary construction works and some information on our next consultation.

We expect this to be our last consultation on the whole connection before we submit our applications for consent. Your feedback plays an important role in influencing our work so it’s really important you take part if you have comments you want us to consider.  See our Consultation and Engagement page for more information and details of what we’ll be consulting on.

Since our last consultation, we’ve been keeping people up to date on our work as it progresses throughout the year. We published our summer 2014 community bulletin which included more details on pylon types. In spring, we provided information on the proposed sites for the sealing ends – the equipment we need to connect overhead and underground sections together.
