An Independent Evaluation of the Costs for Underground High Voltage Cables in Great Britain

A submission by CPRE, CNP and NAAONB

This report sets out our concerns that the costs of underground high voltage cables may have been significantly overestimated, and conversely that of overhead lines underestimated, in industry calculations to date. We also believe that insufficient attention has been given to the amenity benefits of undergrounding, some of which have economic values.
