National Grid is extending its public consultation on its proposals to build a new 60-kilometre, high voltage electricity power line running between a new substation at Chesterfield and an existing substation at Willington.

The public consultation has been extended until 11:59pm on Tuesday, 17 September 2024 to give people additional time to have their say and provide feedback.

National Grid says building a new power line between Chesterfield and Willington will increase the capacity in the centre of the country, enabling cleaner, greener energy to be carried around the network, benefiting homes and businesses in Derbyshire and beyond, and supporting the UK’s offshore wind and net zero targets.

Leanne Evans, Project Director for Chesterfield to Willington, said: “We’d like to thank everyone for taking part in our consultation so far, your comments and feedback are invaluable in helping to refine our proposals for this important development.

“Feedback previously submitted during this consultation remains valid, but if you haven’t yet done so, please do get involved, visit our website and find out more.”
