★A call to use whole life costs of transmission systems when considering the economics of transmission technologies.
★ A call for the fiscal value of the detriment to the environment caused by pylons to inform decisions to use them.
★ A call for your MP to press for an end to sham public consultation processes and for legislation to be enacted to force real consultation with the public that truly impacts final infrastructure planning decisions.
★ A call for your MP to ensure that the economics of electricity transmission is looked at from a broad economic perspective that includes impacts to other industries and not just from the narrow point of view of the electricity industry.
