Next month: public event for plans for major development on Acre Lane for National Grid’s London Power Tunnels

On April 17 and 18, Brixton Hill residents will be able to attend public information events organised by National Grid about plans for an important development at the corner of Acre Lane and King’s Avenue.

National Grid are planning to build a new network of tunnels deep below the surface in South London, between sites at Wimbledon and New Cross. The tunnels will carry high voltage electricity cables. They say the works are essential in order to replace existing electricity circuits which are coming towards the end of their useful life. By placing the cables in deep underground tunnels, they aim to reduce disruption to the local area.

As part of this work, National Grid need to build a tunnel shaft and headhouse in the Brixton area. Their chosen site is on the corner of Kings Avenue and Acre Lane. The shaft is needed to help build the tunnel, and the headhouse will cover the shaft and will be used as an access point once the tunnel is built.

They will need planning permission for the headhouse and, ahead of making the application, will be sharing details of the works so that members of the public can feedback on the headhouse design and find out more about the wider project.

Two public information events will be held on Tuesday 17 April and Wednesday 18 April from 2pm to 8pm in Clapham Library, Mary Seacole Centre, 91 Clapham High Street, SW4 7DB. The details of this event will be advertised in the local press and social media, and local residents have been invited by letter.
