  • a substation containing transformers, associated switchgear and control and protection equipment
  • operations and maintenance buildings with associated car parking
  • road upgrade works on the site access route
  • above ground and underground cabling
  • internal all-weather access tracks
  • security system and security fencing
  • native vegetation plantings to provide visual screening
