National Grid asks Burnham residents for their views on pylon plans

Burnham-On-Sea residents will be able to have their say about controversial plans to build a row of pylons across the Somerset Levels when a special consultation event is held on Thursday (October 3rd).

National Grid will be inviting local people to express their opinions on the proposals for a 400,000 volt electricity connection project between Bridgwater and Avonmouth when its consultation display is at Burnham's Morrisons supermarket in Pier Street between 9.30am and 4pm.

Residents will be able to find out more about the project, pick up information, including a feedback form ahead of National Grid's consultation ending on 29th October.

"It could be the last opportunity to have your say and influence the plans before National Grid submits its planning application in early 2014," a spokesman told

"Let us know how the proposal might affect your local area, if you're happy with the proposals, or if you want to see something change."

Local people can also visit one of the information points at Mark Village Hall and Woolavington Village Hall, where maps of the proposed line and copies of the Overview Report and Feedback Forms are available.

Information point availability is subject to opening times of each venue so visit for up-to-date opening times or call 0800 377 7347.

Alternatively, local libraries and council head offices have copies of the main reports and plans you can view.
