2nd Phase of HyNet North West Commences with 90km of New Hydrogen Pipeline Across Cheshire

Landowners and occupiers will this week start to receive letters and licences to permit access for environmental surveys as part of the 2nd Phase of the HyNet North West Scheme, led by
Cadent Gas. Their appointed Agents, Fisher German are seeking survey rights for 90 kilometres of new pipeline to transport Hydrogen from a new production plant at Stanlow Refinery to Warrington, Manchester and Northwich to be used in industry and transport.

In return for a licence fee, landowners can expect access for a number of environmental surveys, including newts, bats and badgers etc. It is expected that intrusive borehole, trial pit and archaeological surveys will be carried out in the Autumn of 2022 with the aim of submitting a Development Consent Order/ Planning Application for the scheme in March 2023.

Rostons are representing a large number of landowners and occupiers already affected by the 1st Phase from Stanlow to Flint, ensuring that the correct licence fees are paid and agreeing access and compensation for intrusive surveys.

Jonathan Bell of Rostons comments “this major infrastructure scheme will impact many landowners and farmers in Cheshire, it is important that those affected seek professional advice, particularly as the project seeks to enter into agreements to acquire rights over land in the near future”.
