SSEN Community Engagement - Friday 31st May

SSEN are hosting an in-person session at East Worldham Village Hall between 14.30-18.30 on Friday 31st May regarding their current planning application for the construction of a new electricity substation and new access road off Blanket Street, West Worldham. (planning application is 60393).

The footprint of the proposed substation would be approximately 120m x 80m. The construction footprint would be approximately 130m x 90m roughly the size of a football pitch.

The proposed substation compound would be enclosed by a palisade fence and would contain infrastructure relating to the distribution of electricity. These would include modern, low noise, high voltage transformers, cabling conductors and steel panel constructed buildings.

Information about the proposed works can be found on the SSEN website at:

EHDC Planning website 

Currently we have been advised that the EHDC planning website will not be available between 23rd -3rd June due to IT Maintenance but comments will be open again from that date.

An overview of the planning documents will be added to the Worldham Parish Council website (under planning) for ease whilst the EHDC site is down for IT maintenance. However, comments will need to be submitted via the EHDC website once it is open again.

SSEN Update

SSEN have, as agreed, finished working on the B3004 for the time being during the forthcoming exam season. The B3004 from Alton to Kingsley is OPEN. There are still some remaining trench works to be undertaken on the B3004 in the following places:

  1. Lode Farm, under the stream, near the junction to Oakhanger 
  2. By the Three Horseshoes car park and around the oak tree
  3. Under the Esso pipeline near the Worldham Golf course

The is no definite time for when these works will commence but it is expected to be around August time.

In June work will commence on Wilsom Road, after the A31 bridge, to Mill Lane, and this is intended to be under traffic lights.

Once all the work has been completed, then SSEN will start laying the cables. The cables are about 1,000 metres in length and will need to be connected by constructing “Joint Bays” where the cables will be joined together. Again, the plan will be to do this under traffic lights.
