National Grid - North West Coast Connections
Lancaster City Council is one of a number of local authorities in Cumbria and Lancashire which has agreed to work closely with National Grid to ensure local communities are informed of plans to upgrade and reinforce the existing electricity transmission system to connect new power generating sources in the North West.
A total of 16 local authorities and the Lake District National Park Authority have signed the Planning Performance Agreement (PPA) which sets out how local communities and decision makers will be engaged in the planning process that will help shape proposals for the North West Coast Connections project.
Following two years of extensive work and research, National Grid has identified six potential options to make the connections needed in Cumbria. Details of these options are available on the project website: www.northwestcoastconnections.com where people can also register their details now to ensure they get regular updates on the project.
