Plans for the formation of a 400kV electricity substation and associated infrastructure at Newton of Sandford, Boddam, were agreed by members of the Buchan Area Committee on Tuesday.

An application from Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission Plc was submitted to Aberdeenshire Council for approval and was unanimously agreed at the Arbuthnot House meeting.

The site, which will be surrounded by a 2.4m security fence, is within the Energetica Corridor, which runs from Aberdeen to Peterhead.
