Please could you advise how I am able to answer question 1 on the mid wales connection feedback form
Q1 of the different substation siting areas National Grid has identified which do you think is most appropriate? please tick one only
substation siting area near Cefn Coch
substation siting area near to Abermule
I have no preference
Since I live in four crosses and have potential routes from both hubs I am unable to answer Q1. I would like to say that I do not want either but that option is not avaiable, Please could you advise?

Advice given

I am unable to provide legal opinions or comment on the merits of the scheme or national policy. Therefore, may I suggest that the query set out in your email is raised directly with the promoters of the Mid Wales Connection scheme. The National Grid project team can be contacted on 0800 019 5325 or by email at national [email protected] There is also a project website;

If you are or are not satisfied with the consultation I would advise you to speak to your Local Authority as they will be invited to submit an ?Adequacy of Consultation Representation? once an application is submitted. I would also advise you to continue communications with the applicant as by law they must take into account all responses they receive.
Once an application is submitted and has been accepted to go forward to examination, the public are invited to register their interest and submit a ?Relevant Representation? to the Commission with a summary of their comments. More detailed representations can then be made during the examination stage. Further information can be found on our website:
