Esso values its long-term relationships with people who have our existing pipelines on their land.
We have a land agent team, led by the specialist company Fisher German LLP. As the project develops, the Fisher German team will contact some landowners to arrange access to private land for surveys. Ultimately, if the Development Consent Order is granted, we will seek agreements with the relevant landowners for the installation and operation of the replacement pipeline. We will need to install the pipeline on private land, but it will not pass under any existing homes.
As part of the application process, there is a legal requirement to identify who owns or has an interest in the land. To make sure the information is as accurate as possible, the Fisher German team has written to landowners within the corridors and on the initial working route proposed ‘order limits’ of the project (which includes the initial working route and other land that may be required for the installation phase).
Fisher German is the first point of contact for landowners.
More information for landowners is available within the landowner pack.
