Purpose.

The purpose of this report is to provide Cabinet with information about the proposal by Aquind Ltd to develop an electricity interconnector and to outline what some of the implications for Portsmouth might be. The report also seeks the advice of members on how we should respond to this proposal.

 

RECOMMENDED that the Cabinet:

1.  Note that Aquind are seeking to develop an electricity Interconnector between the UK and France with a converter station in Lovedean. They are proposing to "land" the high voltage DC (HVDC) electricity cable at Eastney and run it up through Portsmouth to the converter station at Lovedean.

2.  Note that despite representations from Portsmouth City Council that the Aquind proposal should be determined by the relevant local planning authorities (including Portsmouth City Council), the Government has decided that the proposal was a 'Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project' that should be determined by the Secretary of State through theDevelopment Consent Order process.

3.  Seek the support of Full Council to reinforce the Cabinet's objection to the route of the HVDC cable whilst also working constructively with Aquind and other stakeholders.

4.  Agree that the Council responds to this proposal in a coordinated way and where possible works with neighbouring councils on any common approaches.
