Fareham Borough Council’s planning committee is set to decide on National Grid’s plans for the IFA2 station at Daedalus on Monday, January 23 at a special meeting in Ferneham Hall, Fareham.

The £500m project would bring energy from France via undersea cables.

There have been recent concerns that the aftermath of Britain’s exit from the EU could delay the decision, but the council have since quashed these fears.
