The community at The Green near Millom held a meeting with National Grid in early September and they have shared the minutes of the meeting with us.  It is clear that the local community is very unhappy with National Grid's handling of the consultation process, especially that a tunnel under the Duddon Estuary is not being considered to avoid landscape and wildlife damage on both sides of the Duddon Estuary as well as harm to local community interests. 

National Grid were pressed hard on why the southern Lake District was being avoided to prevent damage, but the equally valuable west of the Lake District and the Duddon Valley were not being treated in the same manner.

Thanks to the community group of The Green and surrounds for sharing them with us.
