AQUIND Interconnector

I own a plot of grazing land measuring 1 1/2 acres in Broadway Lane, Lovedean. My land is used for grazing horses. Aquind are proposing to use 104 square metres of my land to plant hedging and to have permanent access rights to my land to facilitate maintenance of the hedges. Below are some of the issues and concerns I have regarding these proposals:- 1. Will the hedging be safe for equines. 2. Health and Safety of the horses during access to the land for planting, fencing and while maintenance is being carried out. 3. What safeguards will be taken to ensure the land is not damaged by landscaping contractors and their equipment. 4. The fencing used to protect new landscaping must be safe for horses. 5. I am concerned that the Interconnector structure and the loss of some of my field will affect the sale and value of my land.
