After the preliminary consultation was completed in March 2018, GridLink carried out a range of land and seabed surveys, engineering studies and regulatory procedures. During this interim period, we carried out meetings with key interest groups to inform them of progress and the updated schedule for implementing the lessons learned for public consultation.
In September 2019, we started the preparation of the Environmental Impact Assessment and permit applications in France. Therefore, the full public consultation programme has also started at this time in accordance with the results of the preliminary consultation.
Further public consultations are planned prior to the submission of permit applications, including public meetings, thematic meetings and distribution of information about the GridLink proposals to local residents.
