Aquind's proposed development route will have a significant impact on land and properties belonging to the University of Portsmouth. The current plans will cause disruption to the University’s provision of facilities to students, in particular the provision of sports facilities on key subject areas for the University. As well as the potential impact on current University business, the University has future development plans for the areas of land which will be impacted by the cable routing. Our understanding is that the development of the land in this way would render it unsuitable for development in the manner we had anticipated and will therefore result in significant financial loss to the University. We would welcome further discussions with Aquind to seek to find a route which does not have the huge negative impact on the University as is currently proposed.
