Request to know whether the company, as a statutory consultee, had been missed from either Environmental Impact Assessment consultation or other formal consultation

Cyngor a roddwyd

Thank you for your email. Through the Infrastructure Planning (EIA) Regulations 2009 process the applicant is required to submit either a screening request to the IPC or provide a Regulation 6 notification before starting formal consultation with Statutory Consultees. The applicant has currently not provided either a screening request or a Regulation 6 notification to the IPC at this time. Our current understanding is that the promoter will probably not request a scoping opinion from the IPC.
If a Regulation 6 notification is received, the IPC will write to all Statutory Consultees notifying them that the applicant intends to provide an Environmental Statement for the project in accordance with Regulation 9 of the EIA Regulations. Unless a scoping opinion is requested from the IPC, the IPC will not consult on the scope of the ES with the statutory consultees.
I hope that this provides some clarity on your concern. If you have any further queries, please may I suggest that you raise these directly with the applicant. Contact details can be found below:
