Dong wish to build a new windfarm in the North Sea and National Grid want it to connect to the substation at Mangreen; this requires Dong to construct an 80m wide cable corridor from near Cromer to the substation.  In order to minimise transmission losses the cable should follow the shortest route.  The cables will be buried 1.2m underground in 6 trenches about 8m apart (could be 0.7m where there are obstructions).  Dong have been planning the route for several years and are proposing the route shown below through Little Melton - the purple area shows a possible alternate route.
