Constraints plan – cables, offset, noise contours, underground easements
Summary of technical considerations
There is an electrical substation located to the east of the site from which a number of overhead cables are routed. 400kV and 133kV cables cross the site, with the higher voltage cables running east-west almost through the centre of the site.
A high pressure main runs through the site to the sewage treatment work. This can be diverted as part of the proposals.
There are some parts of the site that could be subject to raised noise levels, mainly from the sewage treatment works and the electrical substation. These raised noise levels can be reduced by design, or avoided through the location of development in the masterplan.
