Viking Link Update

Sea storm, flooding, squall, waves, tides_19732The NFU has written to all the local planning authorities involved in the Viking Link application in conjunction with the Lincolnshire Association of Agricultural Valuers.

We have expressed concerns about the impact on agricultural land and soils and that National Grid has not carried out meaningful negotiations to date and has not considered the full impact of the construction of the scheme on the agricultural holdings affected.

The NFU and LAAV have asked for the planning application not to be approved until National Grid carry out negotiations with them, landowners and farmers.
