Isle of Portland Natural Gas Storage Facility and Gas Pipeline

May 2010 | Filed under: Planning

Portland Gas Ltd asked us to advise on several aspects of the Environmental Statement that supported a successful planning application to develop the Upper Osprey Gas Storage Facility on the Isle of Portland and associated gas pipeline link to the national gas grid.
We considered the likely impacts of disruption to holiday traffic; disruption to rights of way and beach access; impacts of the image of Weymouth and the surrounding area as a tourist destination and; impacts on the 2010 Olympic Sailing venue and associated promotion of Dorset and the Jurassic Coast.
