Esso Petroleum Company Limited are proposing to replace 90km of the underground aviation fuel pipeline that runs from the Fawley Refinery near Southampton to the West London Terminal storage facility in Hounslow.
The current pipeline and the proposed route for the new pipeline will pass through the Village. For full details see the Project website.
In November 2020 the Parish Council was advised that permission had been received from the UK Government for the replacement pipeline to be installed. It was anticipated that early works would start late in 2021 and the main pipeline installation would take place from 2022.
