Compulsory purchase solicitors to hold webinar for pylon affected landowners

Holmes & Hills’ specialist team of compulsory purchase solicitors is to hold a free online webinar for landowners potentially impacted by the Norwich to Tilbury pylons scheme taking place at 6:30PM on Tuesday 16th July.

The Norwich to Tilbury Pylon Scheme is currently at public consultation. this is a pre-cursor to an expected formal application for a Development Consent Order (DCO) by National Grid in early 2025.

It is important as a landowner potentially impacted by the scheme (as it is currently proposed), that you understand your legal rights and your position in respect of statutory compensation should the scheme progress as most recently presented.

Attending this free online information session will provide for you understanding the legislation surrounding the scheme, how the scheme will progress, and what rights you have as a landowner if impacted by the scheme.

Date and Time:

Date: Tuesday 16th July
Time: 6:30pm
Cost: FREE
