On 8 and 9 July SSEN Transmission will host four online consultation events to engage with the stakeholders on its plans to provide a connection for Elchies Windfarm, near Craigellachie, Morayshire

The consultation events will present the preferred route and technology for the new overhead line which will run from between Elchies substation and Blackhillock substation and seek feedback on this to help inform a more detailed route and alignment study. 

To facilitate the consultation events SSEN Transmission has developed an online consultation tool, to enable the local community to experience the full exhibition from home on a computer, tablet or mobile device, whilst maintaining Government guidance on social distancing. The online exhibition has been designed to look and feel like a real consultation in a community hall, with exhibition boards, maps, interactive videos and the opportunity to share views on the proposals.

Project Manager Mark Baxter said: “We are very early on in the development of the project and as a responsible developer we are keen to work closely with the local community to consider their views

“We encourage anyone who might be interested in our proposals to join the virtual consultations where you will be able to engage directly with our project team, via a live chat function, where they can ask any questions they might have about the project and share their feedback on the current proposals.”

The virtual consultation events will be taking place as follows:

8 July  2020 13:00 - 15:00

8 July  2020 17:00 - 19:00

9 July  2020 14:00 - 16:00 

9 July 2020  18:00 - 20:00
