East Anglia Green is a proposed new electricity transmission route planned by the National Grid, to run from Norwich Main, just south of Norwich, to Tilbury in Essex via Bramford substation in Suffolk.

The suggestion is for it to consist of new overhead power lines running between pylons, along a separate corridor to the already existing line of overhead cables and pylons just to the east of the proposed new route.



CPRE Norfolk understands and supports the increasing need for offshore wind but it is essential that 1960s lowest-cost solutions are not the default setting for the power network. Underground cabling should be used for any new National Grid transmission lines. This would help to ensure less harmful long-term impacts for residents, the environment, settings of heritage assets, tranquillity and the countryside.
