NFU Brings Land Agents and Esso Pipeline Team Together for Early Stage Discussions

Esso is working towards the replacement of a fuel pipeline serving Heathrow Airport, known as the Southampton to London Pipeline Project (SLPP).

The NFU has now held two meetings with the project team. The first was in May 2018, during which we discussed consultation and landowner engagement (see here for further details).

During the latest meeting held this month we’ve brought together nearly all of the land agents representing NFU members in Hampshire and Berkshire.

A progress update for the project and details of the meeting are included on the attached note and presentation, during which we discussed details of the application, easement and agents fees.

We have communicated the fact that NFU and representing agents have a preference to see at an early stage:

Draft Heads of Terms

Details concerning any restrictive covenants including information regarding land with planning permission or development value

Details concerning drainage and soils management and aftercare

Details concerning proposed locations and timing of access for construction

Plans concerning temporary diversions of public rights of way

Details of proposed minor claims procedures

Practical information around construction timescales and access.
