More from SPEN
Following on from our email last Friday, I wanted to let you know that our report on the first round of consultation has now been published on our website at http://www.spenergynetworks.co.uk/pages/dumfries_galloway_project_documents.asp.
Since the consultation was carried out in summer 2015, the scope of the project has been revised. It now comprises a scheme between Kendoon and Tongland as detailed in the next section. The purpose of this document is to explain the reasons why the project has changed, address feedback received during the first round of consultation (which is specific to the revised project) and demonstrate how this feedback has influenced its development.
The full DGSR Project between Auchencrosh and Harker is not being progressed at this time. This report focuses on addressing feedback from the first round of consultation which is relevant to a revised scheme between Kendoon and Tongland. In the context of the first round of consultation, this is feedback which is relevant to Consultation Zones 3 and 4 regarding the replacement of existing infrastructure between Kendoon, Carsfad, Earlstoun, Glenlee and Tongland.
In this regard, feedback received which relates to the areas listed below, and which was provided in relation to those elements no longer being progressed (Summary of Feedback Report, February 2016), is not addressed within this report:
• Consultation Zone 1 (Auchencrosh to Newton Stewart);
• Consultation Zone 2 (Newton Stewart to Glenlee);
• Consultation Zone 5 (Glenlee to Dumfries);
• Consultation Zone 6a (Dumfries to the Scottish/English border); and
• Consultation Zone 6b (Scottish/English border to Harker).
We are in the process of delivering hard copies of the report and all associated documents to the following information points by Friday July 22. Opening hours may vary and we recommend calling ahead before making a special trip to avoid a wasted journey:
