As outlined in those posts there is also info on the official HE website and on our website.
Please DO NOT copy and paste any content on our website (or anywhere else for that matter!) into your consultation response. In 2016 HE lumped together 13,000 responses as 1 response as they considered them to be an organised group response as they used a template with a free comments box. We do NOT want a repeat of that this time around, and they have warned us they will do the same again if they consider responses to be organised responses.
Question 12 -Utilities and pylons
- Building the Lower Thames Crossing would require changes to existing utilities infrastructure, including electricity pylons and gas pipelines. More on this can be found in Section 7 of Your guide to consultation, and also Approach to Design, Construction and Operation, Preliminary Environmental Information Report (PEIR) and Preliminary Environmental Information Summary.
- Please let HE know any views you have on the proposed changes to utilities infrastructure.
Use the comments box to tell them anything and everything you want!
Will you be impacted by the changes to the utilities?
What are the implications to our health of potentially having utilities moved closer to homes, schools etc?
How will changes to utilities affect our supply of gas and electric?
What about the noise pollution? Can you hear the buzz of the electricity pylons? How much louder do the electricity pylon wires get when they’re wet?
What will the visual impact be?
Is it safe?
Will it damage the environment?
What about the impacts to wildlife?
Is it acceptable that some people’s home are being taken instead of the route being realigned to avoid them, as it appears to be cheaper to destroy homes than move electricity pylons?
If you have already submitted your response and you think of something else you want to add, just submit your additional comments/feedback via email or mail. We have checked with HE and this is acceptable.
