Land rights and consents for electricity network infrastructure

Closed 15 Sep 2022

Opened 4 Aug 2022


This call for evidence is seeking views on the current land rights and consents processes for electricity network infrastructure. We want to understand whether the current processes are fit for purpose or whether they act as a barrier to the build of electricity network infrastructure. We are seeking views on what improvements could be made and this call for evidence will confirm the scope of our review and whether reform is required.

We are keen to hear from all stakeholders with an interest in electricity networks and connections; especially network companies, landowners, land agents, local planning authorities and connection customers, such as housing developers, renewable energy developers and electric vehicle chargepoint installers.
