  • A sense of place

    The increasing pressure for development and the urban renaissance planning agenda are leading to more development sites being brought forward through the planning process on land that is crossed by National Grid equipment.

    The high standards of design and sustainable development forms advocated by the emerging planning and urban design agenda require a more creative approach to new development around high voltage overhead lines: the need for guidance is clear.

    The sense of place guidelines therefore set out National Grid’s commitment to the highest standards of design in new development around or near high voltage overhead lines, and promote creative design solutions that are compatible with its statutory duty to maintain the national electricity infrastructure.
