  1. I understand that Aquind has issued compulsory purchase orders for several hundred properties in Portsmouth, along the proposed route of the cable, without the knowledge or consent of the local councils involved.
    I also understand Aquind have not obtained planning permission for any of the proposed route…Portsmouth Council are actively opposing the scheme.
    Have compulsory purchase orders been issued for any local properties therefore blighting any sales that are underway ?
    It seems that Aquind have no authority to issue these compulsory purchase orders, but have done so with total disregard for procedure.
    There may be a case for a ‘class action’ against Aquind for the issue of these notices and the distress caused to the recipients.

    The comment by a representative of Portsmouth Council was ‘that’s the way they do things in Russia’
