AQUIND Interconnector

Received 19 February 2020
From Ian Judd and Partners on behalf of The Landowners of land at []

Representation

This Relevant Representation is submitted on behalf of the Owners of Land at [], being Julie Elliott, Robin Elliott, Richard Elliott and Phillip Elliott who wish to be registered as an organisation Interested Party for the forthcoming examination of the Aquind Interconnector Development Consent Order. The land Ownership is reference 3-08 to 3-10 in the book of reference. The landowners' property is proposed to be affected by permanent easements through the center of their holding. To date, Aquind has been very poor in communicating with Landowners, with a lack of clarity or certainty in relation to the routing, impact, works, timings and terms of any agreement. We do not believe Aquind has any intention of reaching an agreement with landowners and are relying solely on their compulsory purchase powers. Given the lack of detailed provided, at this stage, it is difficult to comment on the impact on our clients' property at this time. From the limited information to date the route is impractical from a land management view point, with limited consideration given to the impact on landowners. Our clients are still willing to work with AQUIND to achieve agreement on reasonable terms to the satisfaction of both parties. However, if an agreement is not reached they wish to maintain their objection. Our clients reserve the right to make further detailed representations during the Examination stage of the DCO application.
