Norwich to Tilbury consultation extended until 26 July 2024

National Grid owns and manages the high voltage electricity network in England and Wales, which connects homes and businesses to the energy they need.

The network was built in the 1960s, and National Grid say it now needs some work to reinforce the network and connect new sources of energy.

National Grid wants to build a 400kV electricity overhead transmission line in East Anglia, running from Norwich to Tilbury (originally called the East Anglia GREEN project). It also wants to build a new substation in Tendring (the district to the east of Colchester bordering the North Sea) to connect new offshore wind projects close to the coast.

Part of the proposed new transmission line is planned to go through the rural land to the west of the village, past St Mary’s Church in Buttsbury, through the western edge of Stock Parish (see the map on this page).

National Grid’s statutory consultation has now been extended until 26 July 2024. You can find more information about this and how to comment via

You can attend a free webinar to find out more about the proposals on Tuesday 16 July at 6pm by registering here.

The issue was discussed at the Parish Council’s Annual Meeting on Tuesday 14 May and a formal objection has since been lodged.
