CAT Meeting to Discuss IFA2 Planning Application

A CAT meeting will take place on Monday 23 May at Holy Rood Church from 6 – 7:30pm to discuss the National Grid's planning application for the building of an electricity converter station at Daedalus.

The application also includes plans for public open space at Daedalus and works at Chilling where a connection to the electricity grid network is proposed.

The proposals are part of National Grid's planned energy infrastructure project known as IFA2 (Interconnexion France-Angleterre 2), linking the United Kingdom's electricity transmission network to France. If approved, the electricity interconnector project will provide enough electricity to power around 1,000,000 homes.

Chairman of the CAT Meeting Councillor Arthur Mandry, said: "A planning application has now been submitted and I encourage everyone with an interest to attend to find out more."

A previous CAT meeting was held in December, along with a number of public information events held by National Grid in December and March.

To find out more and comment on the application please visit the planning application page (ref: P/16/0557/OA). You can comment up to 30 June. A decision on the application will be taken later in the year.
