Working with landowners and occupiers

Green GEN Cymru is committed to building strong working relationships with landowners and occupiers as we develop our proposals for Green GEN Towy Usk.

We will work with you as we develop our plans, and we encourage you and/or your representatives to contact us if you have any questions.

Access for surveys

When planning and developing our projects, we need to carry out surveys to help inform both the scheme’s design and the Environmental Impact Assessment.

We need to survey a wide area to ensure we understand the local environment, how it might be affected by our work and any mitigation required. The results of the surveys will help inform decisions on the routeing and siting of the Green GEN Towy Usk project. Some surveys, such as those of birds or bats, need to be carried out at specific times of the year to provide information on nesting or habitat usage.

The findings of these surveys will be included as part of our Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and will help us develop a detailed alignment for the overhead line route, including locations for pylons, access routes and working areas. We will hold a public consultation on the proposed route alignment during 2024.

We will work closely with landowners and occupiers to agree access so that surveys are carried out, wherever possible, at appropriate times and with as little inconvenience as possible.

Allowing Green GEN Cymru access to land for surveys does not stop landowners taking part in the consultation and commenting about the Green GEN Towy Usk project at any time.

Our land agents, Bruton Knowles, will continue to seek voluntary agreements with landowners and occupiers for access, but where that cannot be achieved, we may need to seek relevant legal powers.
