Consulting on the Norwich to Tilbury project is a matter for National Grid Electricity Transmission (NGET) as the Transmission Owner and developer. The Ministry of Defence is a Statutory Consultee under the Planning Act and, as such, NGET is required to engage with RAF Wattisham on potential impacts of the project on Wattisham Air Base. NGET is best placed to comment on any such engagement.
