Between 21 January 2019 and 19 February 2019 we consulted on design refinements along the preferred pipeline route, providing the opportunity for interested people, statutory bodies and organisations to comment.
Before we held the third consultation, we had been listening to feedback from our second public consultation and had been meeting with local authorities, parish councils, environmental bodies, third party infrastructure owners and landowners to understand local environmental features and engineering challenges along the route. To address feedback from the second consultation we refined the route in some places.
When had a clearer idea of where the pipeline route might go, we shared the details of our proposed temporary logistics hubs, which will support the installation of the pipeline. There six were proposed temporary logistics hubs along the replacement pipeline route that we included within our application for development consent.
