DBS will be a major opportunity for the local area and wider region and we are working to ensure that our investment establishes a valuable and lasting legacy for local communities.

We are already working closely with local communities to ensure that we communicate clearly and in a timely manner about our activities, hosting regular Local Liaison Committees with Parish Council representatives. Our aim is to ensure that activities related to DBS cause the least possible inconvenience to local communities as the project progresses.

Before we can start to discuss the projects’ community benefit package, we must wait for the outcome of a government consultation related to electricity infrastructure community benefits. When we have clarity from the government around what level of benefit is expected from future projects, we will begin our own consultation with local stakeholders about what the DBS community benefit package could look like and how it will deliver lasting benefits to local communities.
