Proposed Development in Denmead ~ AQUIND Interconnector

The next development proposal to affect much of our local area is likely to be an infrastructure project led by AQUIND limited.

AQUIND delivered a presentation at Denmead Parish Council's Planning Committee meeting on Wednesday 6th March 2019 in Ashling Pavilion. CLICK HERE for more information. Councillors and residents were also given the opportunity to ask questions and express their concerns. To read the Minutes taken from the Planning Committee meeting, CLICK HERE.

The concept, according to AQUIND, is that by connecting the French and UK grids, both countries can balance supply and demand by reducing the risk of loss of power.  It is estimated the Interconnector could become operational by 2022. 

If residents have received correspondence directly from AQUIND, such as the Land Interest Questionnaire, or if they have any concerns in relation to this 'Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project' (NSIP) affecting Denmead, they have been advised by AQUIND to contact them directly. WSP's Land Referencing Team can be contacted via tel: 020 3116 9389 or by emailing  or accessing information on their website at 

A document produced by AQUIND called the Non-Technical Summary, provides information which includes the potential environmental impacts from the installation of the interconnector. Click on this link
