Hinkley Connection Project – Surveys in Wembdon

Please see this notification from the Hinkley Connection Project.

Hinkley Connection Project – surveys in your area

National Grid will be upgrading the existing pylons between Hinkley and Bridgwater.

The work for this is scheduled to start in mid-2022. In preparation and to help us plan the work, we will need carry out a number of surveys.

In your area we are undertaking ecological surveys to look for protected mammals, great crested newts and dormouse. We’re doing walkover surveys and water sampling at various pond locations, starting on 3 June 2019 for two weeks.

We will then monitor dormouse activities from June 2019 to December 2019.

Any required access to any privately-owned land has been agreed with relevant landowners.

We want to keep you up to date with what we’re doing, and we will be back in touch with further information before starting work on the pylons. If you have any questions, or would like a project briefing, please do not hesitate to contact the community relations team on 0800 377 7347 or by email at hinkleyconnection@nationalgrid.co.uk.

You can find more information on our website at www.hinkleyconnection.co.uk.
