Information for Landowners
Consents Solutions are your main point of contact for any questions or concerns relating to the project. They will be happy to visit your property to discuss the project with you.
Ardent Management are carrying out the Land Referencing process. The purpose of this is to ensure landowners and land occupiers have been identified and contacted for inclusion in correspondence going forward.
We have been in touch with a number of landowners and land occupiers to confirm details, request survey access and to offer meetings to discuss the projects. If you have not yet been contacted by Vattenfall representatives and feel that you should have been, please get in touch via the details below.
Summer 2020 Next Steps: Intrusive Site Investigations
The work we have undertaken to date has highlighted where it will be beneficial to look more closely at ground conditions and what we will encounter under the surface. We also now have more detailed proposals, following consultations and reaching common ground with stakeholders during the examination process, and this too helps us focus our next phase of site investigations to inform detailed design in relation to duct installation, cable design, and trenchless techniques such as horizontal directional drilling (HDD). Over the coming months we will focus on the main crossing points along the proposed cable route (e.g. road or river crossings), the area around the proposed onshore project substation and near landfall.
The purpose of these investigations is to understand more about the geology, ground conditions and drainage, investigate any potential contamination issues, and thermal resistivity of the ground at specific locations. We also need to check places where previous geophysical survey work has indicated we may encounter buried archaeological remains, as well as where the data showed nothing of interest – as a checking exercise.
For more details about the intrusive site investigations please see the FAQ document listed below in Related Information section.
