Norfolk Offshore Wind Zone Community Drop-In event – Necton

Have an interest in the Vattenfall onshore substation works at Necton?

Vattenfall will be holding their next Norfolk Zone Community Drop-In at Necton Community Centre on Friday 21st July 2023 between 9am and 8pm to share more information about their construction plans in the village.

Topics on the agenda include:

  • Cable Routes
  • Traffic Management
  • Principal Contractors
  • Community Benefit Fund
  • Skills and Employment Opportunities

This event follows the similar Community Drop-In event in April (see more here) and it is vital that YOU, the local community, take the chance to engage and have YOUR say.

(See full details of the event in the poster below)

I also continue to pay close interest in the Community Benefit Fund conversation. While permission for the applications has been granted, I remain firmly committed to helping local residents, businesses and community groups be heard on this crucial issue. The areas most impacted by the works MUST get the largest share of the benefits, and have the strongest voice in how the funds are spent.

I understand that, while the Community Benefit Fund discussion will feature again at this Drop-In event, a further series of Community Benefit Fund specific events will be held across Norfolk again later this year – including at Necton.
