Interconnector Portsmouth | 22 June 2022

22 June 2022

Portsmouth City Council has been confirmed by the High Court of Justice to be conjoined as an interested party.

The council’s legal and planning teams are preparing to review AQUIND’s witness statements when they are received and will liaise with the Secretary of State’s legal team to contest the claim for judicial review.

Portsmouth City Council remain strongly opposed to the AQUIND Interconnector project and the proposal to lay cables through areas in the east of the city.  The council believes the suggested route was impractical and would cause significant disruption to residents.
