Proposed Development in Denmead ~ AQUIND Interconnector

The next development proposal to affect much of our local area is an infrastructure project led by AQUIND.

LATEST UPDATE - AQUIND has now submitted its Development Consent application, which shall be considered by the Planning Inspectorate before a recommendation is made to the Secretary of State on whether to grant the application. Confirmation has been received from AQUIND to inform that the 'Highways Route' option for laying the cables via Mill Road and Martin Avenue, has now been discounted. 

Representatives from AQUIND attended Denmead Parish Council's Planning Committee meeting on Wednesday 11th December 2019 at 7.30pm in the Old School. To read Minutes from the meeting, CLICK HERE.

Councillors and  residents were given the opportunity to ask any questions and to express their concerns. 

To view AQUIND's  responses to Denmead Parish Councillors' list of questions from the meeting on 11th December 2019, CLICK HERE.

To view the latest information with timelines, provided by Winchester City Council, in respect of the submitted proposal, CLICK HERE

 The concept, according to AQUIND, is that by connecting the French and UK grids, both countries can balance supply and demand by reducing the risk of loss of power.  AQUIND predicts that the decision shall be finalised by Spring 2021 and it is estimated that the Interconnector could become operational by 2022. 

Information and guidance to the formal application and overall DCO process, which includes over 500 documents, can now be accessed by clicking on the following link:

Carpenters Field Development

UPDATE - 

Highways Act Section 278 Agreement
Hambledon Rd / Anmore Rd, Denmead(residential development)
Please note that on Monday 24th February work will start in Anmore Rd (near Hambledon Rd) to construct an access road into the new residential development. The duration of the work is 5 weeks but it may finish earlier.
 
A section of Anmore Rd road will be closed, but access to all properties will remain open. Instead of using Anmore Rd to access Hambledon Rd, traffic will be diverted along Martin Avenue before joining Hambledon Rd. A pedestrian route will always be provided through the works. Closing the road allows the work to be completed more quickly, minimising the overall disruption for residents.
 
The works have been designed by ‘ELLUC engineers’, consultants to the Developer, Persimmon Homes and are being constructed by Earthtec Contractors.

It is predicted that the first occupation is anticipated in December with the whole build estimated to be finishing by 2021.

Denmead Parish Council will be informed by the Developer of any possible temporary road disruption. We will endeavour to keep our residents informed accordingly.
