Prior to starting construction work, National Grid undertakes a series of stakeholder briefings and public information events.
16 March 2020: Due to the increase risk from COVID-19 and changing government guidelines National Grid has deemed it prudent not to host or attend external meetings at present. This is to play our part in slowing the spread of this virus and maintain people’s health – we think this is the appropriate action to take.
This is a changing situation and we need to wait until further guidance is issued before we can rearrange the programme of public meetings and briefings that were scheduled to share information on the Hinkley Connection Project.
National Grid remains committed to open and transparent communications with all our stakeholders on this project. All meetings will be rearranged as soon as the risk of COVID-19 passes.
Our project website will be kept up to date and is the ‘go to’ place for current construction activities and our community relations helpline (0800 377 7347) remains open 24/7 to answer any questions.
Construction activity continues. We are working with our Contractors to ensure measures are in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19, in line with Government guidelines. These include restricting movement between sites and avoiding physical contact. See the In Your Area pages for more details of what is happening where.
