high voltage cables. in Finding/Owning French Property Posted June 16, 2008 Maude,The route was announced last December, but only in terms of a km wide corridor. Since then it has been worked out in much more detail and the exact route is due to be announced this month or next. There will then be a public enquiry. Source for this is the official website of the project:http://www.cotentin-maine.com/index.htmAs Dick says, it is causing a great deal of anxiety to a lot of people, some of whom will be badly affected. One of the 3 possible routes would have run through our commune and the chosen one will come right through the neighbouring commune, only a very few km down the valley from us.
