Interconnector Portsmouth | 26 January 2024

26 January 2024

The Secretary of State has today issued a letter to AQUIND Limited and all Interested Parties explaining the rationale for the re-determination continuing.

As one of the Interested Parties, the Ministry of Defence (MOD) has contacted the Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero requesting additional time to prepare representations on concerns regarding the proposed AQUIND project.

The Secretary of State considers that it would not be appropriate to take a decision on the application until the MOD has considered its position and submitted its representations and this Department has had time to consider the information presented.

The council continues to strongly oppose the AQUIND Interconnector project and to make representations to the Secretary of State to make the objections clear at every opportunity.
