THURROCK Council has been asked by the Planning Inspectorate for its views on a project that could see power cables erected through the heart of the borough's green belt.

As reported on Thurrock Nub News earlier this year, National Grid is proposing a new 400kV power line known as the East Anglia GREEN project to transfer electricity across the countryside from offshore wind and interconnectors.

It will be routed from the east coast to Tilbury and local residents had to opportunity to learn about the project and offer their input at a number of public consultation events, one of which was held in Linford.

Now an application has been made to the Planning Inspectorate - who are also currently considering the development consent order to build the Lower Thames Crossing on Thurrock's green fields as well.

It has asked for Thurrock Council's view on the project, full details of which can be found via this link.
