Welcome to the Scottish Power Energy Networks (SPEN) public information event page.

We want to update on the progress of proposals for construction of a new 132 kilovolt (kV) overhead line (OHL) supported by wood poles to connect the Kennoxhead Windfarm located on land south of the A70, near the village of Glespin to the existing Coalburn substation, approximately 2.5 km northeast of Coalburn.

We will be hosting public information events online (click session for access):

20 June 2022: 3–4pm

21 June 2022: 6.30–7.30pm

22 June 2022: 3–4pm

If you experience any difficulty logging into the session, please email for instant assistance.

Scottish Power Energy Networks previously held public consultation events in February 2020 as part of the project routeing process. Those events allowed the local community to provide feedback on the proposals and to raise any other issues they may have. Since then, the baseline surveys have been completed, a Proposed Route has been selected and the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is now underway.

These events are an opportunity for SPEN to provide the community with an update on proposals and our next steps. Further information is available on the project web page.

If you wish to discuss these events or have any further questions you can contact us by email at: 

Or by post at: Kennoxhead Grid Connection Project, Land and Planning Team, SP Energy Networks, 55 Fullarton Drive, Glasgow G32 8FA.

Please note that this notice does not relate to an application and that any comments made during this stage are not representations to The Scottish Government Energy Consents Unit, who will determine any subsequent application for consent. Following the submission of the Section 37 Application, interested parties will have the opportunity to make representations to the Scottish Government on these proposals.
