Thanet Extension Offshore Wind Farm

Representation

I am writing on behalf of UK Power Networks Ltd and the Licenced Distribution Networks Operator South Eastern Power Networks plc.


South Eastern Power Networks plc is the occupier of premises in the land to be used under the above Order. It is also entitled to the benefit of rights in, over, on or under such land and is the owner of Electric Lines and/or Electrical Plant (as those terms are defined in Section 64(1) of the Electricity Act 1989) in, on, over or under the land to be acquired and/or temporarily used under the above Order. These premises, rights and apparatus have been acquired for and are used for the purposes of its statutory undertaking.

South Eastern Power Networks plc objects to the making and confirmation of the Order unless at the cost of the acquiring authority there are first provided to it, on no less favourable tenure suitable alternative sites and suitable alternative rights in, on, over or under land in substitution to those to be acquired and/or temporarily used under the above Order and in, on over or under which there are first installed and commissioned Electric Lines and Electrical Plant in substitution for those in the land to be acquired and/or temporarily used under the above Order, before that land is acquired and/or temporarily used so that my client can carry out its statutory functions and contractual obligations no less efficiently than previously.

Please treat this representation as an objection by South Eastern Power Networks plc to the relocation/extinguishment of rights and apparatus mentioned above because their relocation will be detrimental to the carrying on of its undertaking. No alternative land, rights and apparatus for those proposed to be acquired under the above Order are in place.


South Eastern Power Networks plc reserves the right to amend or supplement its objections in the light of any information that later becomes available.

The above objections will be deemed to be withdrawn upon signature of an appropriate deed of Undertaking by an authorised signatory of the Acquiring Authority.

All future correspondence relating to this matter should be sent to Carl Bennett by hard copy to UK Power Networks Legal Department, Energy House, Carrier Business Park, Hazelwick Avenue, Three Bridges, West Sussex, RH10 1EX.

Yours faithfully

Carl Bennett
