National Grid seeks compulsory purchase ruling for Wirral's high voltage cable route.

NATIONAL Grid is finalising plans to use land in Wirral as preparations continue for a new high voltage electricity cable.

Work is set to begin early next year on the Western Link project which will see a 33km cable be installed through the borough in a bid to bring renewable energy to homes.

It is hoped the scheme will be a step towards meeting the UK’s carbon reduction targets.

Now a multiple Compulsory Purchase Order has been issued by the network to acquire rights over land located along the route.

The order is a legal ruling that allows public bodies to obtain land or property without the consent of the owner.

As part of the cable route, which runs from Scotland to Connah’s Quay, it will come ashore at Leasowe, through to the eats of Heswall and Neston before turning south-west between Buton and Puddington towards National Grid’s site at Deeside, where it will be connected into the existing transmission system.

However traffic disruption is expected to be kept to a minimum with clear signage being put in place where there is any.

A National Grid spokeswoman said: “The vast majority of the cable will run through private land so it will have very little impact on local communities.

“Information on the full details of the project is available on our website for residents.”

In February 2011 public exhibitions were held in Moreton and Neston to explain the plans and obtain feedback from the local community.

Work is expected to be fully completed by 2015.

Cable project manager Peter Roper said: "The most important part of our consultation is the feedback we receive.

"This has helped us develop our plans and make changes in a number of important areas.

"The feedback received, together with information from further technical and environmental investigations we have undertaken, has enabled us to refine the route to the one published.

"Our priority is to minimise disruption to the communities where we are constructing this cable and to the land through which it passes.

"Before we start construction we will work closely with the local authorities to ensure that effects on traffic are minimised and noise and dust controlled.

"We will also hold a series of public information events to let local people know what is planned in their area."

So not only we are forced to pay for a load of "green" rubbish that will stop when we have no wind, people will be forced to sell land as well, British democracy at it's best, from the LibLabCon and the EU tossers, so no change.

The turbines may not do much when there's no wind, but they do plenty when there is. There's not many days I don't see the ones at Seaforth moving.

A coal fired power station is equally useless without a constant supply of coal, but people don't seem to worry about that.

The benefit of a wind turbine is that when it is moving, that energy is free - in cost and pollution. You can't say the same for any other electricity generation.
