We were in touch with the Times and the Telegraph regarding the coincidence of the National Grid Board meeting regarding the final route proposal and UNESCO’s World Heritage Site visit to the National Park on 4th October.  This resulted in two articles, one in the Sunday Telegraph and the other in the Times on Saturday.

The article in the Times does make us look like we are privy to National Grid’s proposals as our policy officer Kate Willshaw has been misquoted in the article. We are assuming that the journalist has had sight of information that National Grid is taking to its Board tomorrow. We do not have this information ourselves and have not stated that we are pleased with National Grid’s decisions (as we don’t know what they are yet!) but it is very positive to see a potential shift in National Grid concessions.
