Refusing skeleton for an electricity couple between Denmark and a UK would concede a latter’s ability to source energy, a formulation exploration was told.

As partial of a scheme, formulation applications were submitted to councils in East Lindsey, North Kesteven, Boston and South Holland.

East Lindsey was a usually legislature to exclude permission, fearing a impact on tillage and a landscape.

It has now forsaken a objections after usurpation a impact of a work would be temporary, according to a Local Democracy Reporting Service.
