East Suffolk Council has confirmed that it will engage with local communities about two major energy projects which are commencing consultations.
Today, both National Grid Ventures (NGV) and National Grid Electricity Transmission (NGET) have launched their consultations on the EuroLink and Sea Link projects respectively. Sea Link is a domestic interconnector between Suffolk and Kent required for network reinforcements. Eurolink is an international multi purpose interconnector between the Netherlands and Suffolk.
Both are informal and non-statutory consultations, however they will be followed next year by formal, statutory consultations. NGV and NGET are seeking comments and feedback on their potential landfall, cable route and converter station options. The consultations will last eight weeks finishing on 18 December 2022. They will include some face to face events and webinars, details of which will be published by the developers and viewable on their individual project webpages.
