Have your say on proposed new power line between King’s Lynn and West Winch

People can register to have their say over plans for an overhead power line near King's Lynn, as it moves on to the next stage in the planning process.

National Grid wants to build a two-mile overhead line to connect a proposed new power station, on the outskirts of King's Lynn, with the main electricity supply near West Winch.

The Planning Inspectorate, which oversees major infrastructure projects, last night said the proposal had been accepted for examination - meaning it can proceed towards a formal decision.

'As far as the process is concerned the application will be reviewed, which will take six months, in which the public have an opportunity to give their views,' a spokesman for the inspectorate said.

'At the end of that six months, the Planning Inspectorate will make a recommendation to the Secretary of State for Energy, who will then make a decision whether to give it consent.'
