Balhungie variation application
We are considering seeking planning permission for a short section of alternative onshore cable route on land between the A930 and Balhungie Farm to that approved under the current planning consent.
The approved onshore cable route was, at the time of development, considered to be the best route in terms of environmental, technical and economic factors. The consented route was agreed in consultation with Angus Council, statutory consultees and affected parties. However, further dialogue with the landowner of Balhungie Farm has resulted in a request to amend the approved route through the farm to further minimise potential impacts on farm operations. The proposed alternative route will also provide a better angle to cross a high pressure gas pipeline which crosses through the consented route.
Under normal circumstances, we would hold a public exhibition in a local venue, but the Covid-19 pandemic and the associated Government guidance means that we are unable to hold such an event.
Therefore, we are presenting our proposal information here, with the consultation information boards now available for download and inspection as well as maps and other information.
Our consultation information boards and detailed maps are available for inspection and download below. For ease, we have provided the boards individually (there are 12 in total) and any corresponding maps adjacent to the relevant board.
We have provided a complete set of consultation boards as one document (the first file below) and under that each board is available separately for ease.
As we are unable to meet with you and other interested parties face to face, we hope that we have provided enough information about our proposal and the work that will take place during cable installation.
We recognise that we may not have answered all of your potential questions or concerns. If you would like to speak to a member of the project team, please in the first instance contact:
Pauline Allison, Stakeholder Engagement Manager - / 07880 180662
In addition, we would be grateful if you could spend a few minutes completing the Consultation Questionnaire which is now an online form, provided via the Google Forms service. The link to the Questionnaire is below the consultation information boards.
If you have any difficulties accessing the materials (which are in the widely accessible PDF format), please contact Pauline Allison, details above.
