SPEN Feedback report and Reinforcement Project

Thank you for your interest in SP Energy Networks’ Kendoon to Tongland 132kV Reinforcement Project, which concerns our proposals to replace part of the electricity network in Dumfries and Galloway.

We have now reviewed our proposals against the feedback we received during the second round of consultation on preferred routes, which took place between October and December last year. Our responses to the questions raised, including how these have influenced the design of the project, are detailed in a summary of feedback report.

You can view and download a copy of our feedback report on our project website at

 The report and a separate document containing the appendices can be found on the project documents page.

Hard copies of the report and other relevant associated documents will be available from the following local information points by mid March. NB Opening hours may be subject to change and we recommend calling before making a special trip to avoid a wasted journey.
