We are developing proposals to reinforce the electricity transmission infrastructure in Fort Augustus substation. Following on from our consultation events last year, we have now submitted a Proposal of Application Notice to The Highland Council. We are hosting a further public consultation event on 19th July and would encourage all interested stakeholders to come along and provide their feedback before a full planning application is submitted.”
Throughout the life of our projects, we aim to work positively with local communities and keep people informed about what we are doing. This is particularly important when we are developing a proposal and we want to understand what local people think about our plans.
We endeavour to take the time to discuss proposals with local community councils, encourage engagement from the wider community and listen to the feedback we receive.
We will do our best to answer any questions and address issues or concerns that are raised with us.
If our project progresses into construction, we will continue working closely with the local community to ensure that our work has as little impact on the lives of those living and working in the area and as many long term positive effects as possible.
