  • New electricity reinforcement needed between Bramford and Twinstead by 2028 to carry renewable and low carbon power to homes and businesses
  • Project will help UK achieve its Net Zero target for 2050
  • National Grid will consult communities for eight weeks as part of statutory consultation
  • Online webinars, ‘ask the experts’ sessions and telephone consultation events to start on Tuesday 25 January

National Grid is holding a statutory public consultation on its proposals to reinforce the electricity network between Bramford in Suffolk, and Twinstead Tee in Essex. The consultation will run for eight weeks from Tuesday 25 January to Monday 21 March 2022.

The reinforcement is needed to carry more renewable and low carbon power from offshore wind, interconnectors and nuclear power. The plans include building a new 400 kV electricity transmission reinforcement between Bramford substation and Twinstead Tee, comprising 19km of overhead line and 10km of underground cables. National Grid would also remove around 27.5km of existing pylons.

National Grid held a non-statutory consultation last year, which has helped inform the development of the project. This statutory public consultation will give local communities the opportunity to see how their comments have been taken into account and to provide further feedback on the plans, before National Grid submits a planning application to the Planning Inspectorate.

Liam Walker, Project Director for Bramford to Twinstead, commented: “This reinforcement between Bramford and Twinstead is essential to carry more clean energy to homes and businesses across the UK, and to help the country reach Net Zero by 2050. We thank everyone who has already commented on our plans, and we are looking forward to sharing our updated proposals and receiving further feedback."

Members of the public will be able to take part in the consultation and speak with National Grid’s team by attending online webinars, booking a slot at an ‘ask the experts’ session or by visiting the project website. Paper copies of consultation materials will also be available to view at several locations in the local area.
