Eastern Fields - Public open space disposal

We are considering the leasehold disposal of 17 sq. m (0.004 acres) of land at Eastern Fields, to Western Power Distribution (WPD) to enable the construction of a new electricity sub-station and the laying of new Low Voltage (LV) cabling.

The new substation will be an upgrade replacement of the existing “showground” substation which will be removed once the new substation is switched on. WPD will reinstate the site of the old substation following removal. This work comes under WPD’s permitted development powers and does not need planning permission. The nearby Heath Barton sub-station is unaffected by this work.

Provisional terms are agreed for the leasehold disposal of the land coloured purple on Plan 2 the disposal plan, together with an easement for the new LV cable which connects the new sub-station to the existing Heath Barton sub-station, shown coloured purple on Plan 3. The location is X (easting) 295150, Y (northing) 094288. Grid reference SX95150,94288. What3Words gender.maybe.bigger
