Suffolk County Council say they are ‘deeply concerned’ about a proposal for new electric pylons to be constructed in the countryside. 

On Wednesday (27 January) National Grid published plans for overhead lines to connect into the substation at Bramford near Ipswich. 

The council wants any project to be kept away from certain areas. 

The council is no stranger to protesting against pylons being built in the countryside, in 2012 Suffolk County Council urged the National Grid to bury lines underground.

They argue that there are alternatives to overhead power lines that could be used instead.
