UK Power Networks has applied to the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, to carry out restricted works on Laindon Common.

The energy firm is looking to install a padmount transformer and underground cable leading up the verge of Laindon Common Road, to replace the existing equipment.

The works are expected to take three weeks to complete and, during this time, traffic management in Laindon Common Road will likely be required, as well as temporary fencing and signage, to ensure the safety of those on site and users of the common.

The Planning Inspectorate will decide on the proposals, which are open to feedback until February 19.
