About the Project

We are developing the North West Coast Connections Project (NWCC) to connect the electricity generated by new energy projects being built in Cumbria and Lancashire to homes and businesses.

National Grid owns and manages the electricity transmission network in England and Wales to which different energy sources are connected. We link people to the energy they use.

Where are we now

2014 consultation is now closed. We will analyse all the comments received during this consultation. Together with the findings from our environmental and technical studies, we will use them to help us choose which route corridors to take forward to the next stage of the development process

Information for landowners

To help the NWCC Project development process we need to conduct detailed surveys of the routes we have identified. Our land representatives have started to make contact with landowners and occupiers along the routes. If you have an interest in land affected by the Project or would like more information, please contact us so we can put you in touch with our land team.
