The formal pre-application consultation will end on 14 December 2020.
The proposals at ENRMF are classified as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) under the Planning Act 2008 and consent must be granted by the Secretary of State in the form of a Development Consent Order (DCO). Augean must submit a DCO application to the Planning Inspectorate (PINS), an impartial public body whose role is to consider all important and relevant matters and whether consent should be granted for nationally significant infrastructure projects. We are at the pre-application stage of the process which is set out below.
An analysis of the responses we receive will be included in a Consultation Report that will accompany the application for a DCO. We will report back to the local community to let you know how we have responded to the comments we have received during the consultation process when we submit the application.
PINS will first decide, on behalf of the Secretary of State, whether to accept the application. If accepted, PINS will appoint an independent examiner or panel of examiners (referred to as the Examining Authority) who carry out a six month examination with hearings and consider any representations made by interested parties. Following the examination, the Examining Authority will make a recommendation to the Secretary of State who will then decide whether or not a DCO should be made.
Further information regarding the DCO application process is set out in the exhibition or can be found on the National Infrastructure Planning website at:
or by telephone on 0303 444 5000
It is anticipated that the application will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate in late Spring 2021. If the application is accepted this would mean that the 6 month examination process would start during the latter part of 2021 with a final decision on the application made in the summer of 2022.
Once the application has been submitted and is accepted for examination, we will advertise in the news media and notify all our stakeholders.
