I am deeply troubled by the National Grid’s proposals to build electricity pylons in our constituency. I have expressed these concerns emphatically to National Grid representatives and I will be conveying constituents’ views on this proposal throughout this consultation.
I have expressed particular concern about the proximity of the pylons to the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty of the Wolds, as well as the dominance such structures would have over the skylines of Louth, St James’ spire and the coastline. I have demanded detailed explanations as to why offshore or underground cabling is not yet being considered.
I urge local residents to make their voices heard in National Grid’s consultation on this proposal. The consultation starts today and will remain open until 13th March 2024.
You can respond online at nationalgrid.com/g-w. You can request a written feedback form by calling 0800 0129 153 or emailing email@example.com. National Grid will also be holding public exhibitions.
Please spread the word amongst your friends, neighbours and families to make sure their views are heard in this short consultation period.
