Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay

Portcawl Environment Trust - Brian Saunders


With reference to the latest letter from the PI giving details of the Preliminary Meeting.
I believe that I wrote to you giving my apologies in advance for not being able to attend the meeting.
I noticed that the PI letter gave details of all organisations present at the meeting.
Sadly however no details were given of organisations who sent their apologies. Can these details be added to the relevant correspondence?
I have requested an answer to this question previously.
How can the PI panel give a recommendation of acceptance of the Tidal Lagoon project to the relevant Secretary of State (SoS), and following on how can the SOS grant permission for the project to be accepted, when the UK Government have a Infringement Action against them from the EU, over not designating SAC sites for the Harbour Porpoises in UK waters?
In one instance specifically, the OUTER BRISTOL CHANNEL.(Read PET's letter).
Refer to letter sent with Porthcawl Environment Trust's (PET)Relevant Representation.
Surely the PI and the Secretary of State could face an action of Contempt of Court. Current legal action by the EU still ongoing.
Would someone give an answer to above questions please Ewa?
Brian Saunders. PET.

Apologies for the delay in responding to your email of 17 June 2014.
The Planning Inspectorate has a template for the taking of meeting notes for the Preliminary Meetings which are held in every examination. This template does not include the inclusion of apologies sent. Your apologies were made known to the Panel of inspectors and published on the National Infrastructure pages of the Planning Portal website attachment 1. Furthermore, the meeting note cannot be amended.
In relation to your question regarding the outer Bristol Channel and the concerns raised in the Porthcawl Environmental Trust?s relevant representation, this is a matter for the examination to address and therefore would be inappropriate for me to comment at this point. Any concerns that you have should be raised through your written representation which should be submitted for Deadline II of the examination by 9 July 2014.
