Approval to lay HV Cables in Cuba Street

Ralph Hardwick made this Freedom of Information request to Tower Hamlets Borough Council Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Tower Hamlets Borough Council,

This is a request for information from Highways.

In October 2022 Cuba Street was cordoned off near to West India Pier for UKPN to lay a High Voltage power cable along Cuba Street and cross the Thames Path to the flood defence wall. The reference/permit number on the signage was: EC40059920539, and the work was due to be completed by 14th October.

Please can Highways provide copies all correspondence, permits and any associated drawings/plans for this work to take place?

What works did Highways permit to be carried out?

Do the drawings identify where the Tower Hamlets land ownership boundary is? If so please provide these drawings/plans.

Did Tower Hamlets advise UKPN that other landowners will be required to be contacted for works beyond the Tower Hamlets land ownership boundary?

Yours faithfully,

Ralph Hardwick

London Borough of Tower Hamlets, Tower Hamlets Borough Council
