A number of utilities run across the site, both over and underground. The most notable utility crossing the site comprises the overhead power lines. There are further low voltage power lines on the site, but these can be relocated underground.
A high pressure gas main runs underground through the eastern side of the site in a south east to north west direction. There is also an intermediate gas main running through the southern part of the site, crossing the new Sainsbury’s development.
Minimum distances are required to be maintained between these utilities and new homes, which are reflected in the Masterplan.
