Balhungie variation application
We have submitted a planning application to Angus Council 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 have held a public exhibition in a local venue, but the Covid-19 pandemic and the associated Government guidance means that we were unable to hold such an event.
Therefore, we are presenting our proposal information here, with information boards available for download and inspection as well as maps and other information.

Online engagement sessions
On Monday 13 July 2020, we held an online engagement session via YouTube, where members of the team presented information and responded to questions submitted during the session via email, text and via YouTube chat.
We then held a second similar live event on Tuesday 29 September for anyone who was unable to take part in the first session.
If you would like to view the initial two hour session, please click this link:

We have prepared a flyover illustrating the Balhungie element of the cable route:
Our 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 boards as one document (the first file below) and under that each board is available separately for ease.
