Developers have undertaken to keep this map updated if any changes are made.  We are working with developers to make sure the up-to-date map is available to view in real time.

Combined maps showing proposed developments


We also have a map of the currently contracted developments that are planned to connect into the proposed Branxton Substation.  Please note most of these cable routes are shown at very high level and will be subject to change during the detail design stage.  It is evident that this map shows more developments than the one above and we are working to establish details of these additional proposed developments.
