Sub-sea electrical interconnector: FAB Project

The FAB Project is proposing to install an electrical interconnector which will run between France, Alderney and Britain – FAB.

The project, which has been designated a ‘Project of Common Interest’ by the European Union, required a community consultation ahead of the work and this was led by KOR.

KOR implemented a programme of stakeholder engagement across East Devon to ensure organisations and individuals who needed to be informed and consulted, had been. Community consultation took place through the organisation of an open day, notices placed in local and regional media, meetings organised with key stakeholders, and surveys taken to measure opinion and log feedback.

More than 400 people attended the consultation events and the application for a UK converter station went on to receive unanimous approval from East Devon District Council.
