Public information event – Biddisham 16 March

Documents and materials related to overhead lines between Bridgwater and Loxton

The scheduled programme of meetings and briefings that we set up to engage with local residents, businesses and elected bodies about the project has been postponed due to Coronavirus.  

We remain though, committed to engaging our local stakeholders and keeping residents and businesses up to date with our activity.  We have set up this Community Portal so that people can easily access and download documents and find links to other resources that would have been available to view at those public meetings.

If you would like to speak to one of the team about the project, our freephone community helpline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Just call 0800 377 7347.
