Non Material Change Application
Prior to the submission of the DCO application, discussions were had with the statutory undertakers whose apparatus crosses the proposed western extension. Standoffs were agreed with them and incorporated into the site design before the finalisation of the proposed development and submission of the application.
The utilities which cross the proposed western extension area of the application site include two parallel water pipes operated by Anglian Water. In March 2022 concerns were raised by Anglian Water regarding the need for a greater standoff distance which they consider necessary to provide suitable access to carry out maintenance and repairs to the pipes in the unlikely event that it becomes necessary.
As this matter has been raised at a late stage in the Examination process and in order to allow the Examination to progress to a decision it is proposed that the application is amended. Therefore, Augean is requesting that the Examining Authority accepts a non material change to the application and has submitted the documents necessary for the Examining Authority to consider the need for and the impacts associated with the proposed change.
Additionally, Augean are seeking the views of other parties. All of the documents that relate to the proposed non material change to the application are available via the links below and we would welcome your comments.
No other changes to the application are proposed. This amendment to the application is considered to be a non material change to the proposed development as it is minor in nature, it produces no new or different environmental effects and it does not require any compulsory acquisition powers or changes to the Order Limits.
