New electricity link with France to be discussed at CAT Meeting

Fareham Borough Council is holding a Community Action Team (CAT) meeting in Stubbington Baptist Church on 10 December at 7pm to discuss National Grid's planned energy infrastructure project, known as IFA2.

The electricity interconnector project will link the United Kingdom's transmission network to France and will provide enough electricity to power around 1,000,000 homes. The interconnector is made up of undersea cables running for more than 100 miles between the two countries which would connect at either end to a converter station. The converter station in Fareham is proposed to be based at Daedalus in Stubbington. The interconnector would link to the electricity network at a replacement substation building at the existing National Grid site near Chilling, Warsash.

Due to limited space at the venue, this will be a ticketed event. Book your ticket to the meeting to have your say at Stubbington Baptist Church (Jay Close, Cuckoo Lane, Stubbington PO14 3TA) by emailing cats@fareham.gov.uk or phoning 01329 236 100.

National Grid is also holding a series of public information events in venues around Fareham and Gosport:

Chairman of the meeting and Ward Councillor for Stubbington, Cllr Kay Mandry said: "The IFA2 project will help enhance the security, affordability and sustainability of energy supply to both the UK and France. If you are interested in the project, please attend the CAT meeting or one of National Grid's exhibitions to find out more."
