PUBLIC consultation has started over plans to build a new underground pipeline shifting carbon dioxide from a pioneering project.

The pipeline will get rid of chemicals from the Don Valley Power Project in Stainforth where the world’s first carbon capture power station is set to be built.

National Grid began its public consultation this week and villagers living close to the proposed site were given the opportunity to have their say.

A public exhibition showing a number of proposed route corridors for the pipeline, which will run from Stainforth to the North Sea, was held at Stainforth Methodist Church on Tuesday.

People were asked for their views on the locations of above-ground equipment, including four valve sites which are required for the safety and monitoring of the pipeline.
