Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay

Phil Jones


A document described on the PINS website as "Note addressing mitigation actions and management plans-OEMP (panel item 11) Submitted 4 November 2014 for Deadline V (Replacement due to formatting error)." has appeared on the PINS website with a publication date of 12th November.
When downloaded the document is found have a filename of "Tidal Lagoon Swansea Nay PLC Note addressing mitigation actions and management plans - AEMP (Panel item 11).pdf".
The document does in fact relate to the AEMP, not OEMP.
Can you please indicate why it has been necessary to republish this document? What was the "formatting error" and where was it? I don't want to have to compare it line by line with the previous document to see if there is a significant difference.

The documents were republished as the applicant felt that the tables with their previous formatting were hard to read. The columns were narrow and therefore text was spread over a number of pages. Therefore the applicant re-submitted these documents. We sought clarification from the applicant that the content was unchanged. Had the contents changed, these would have been published as new, late submissions. A decision was taken to make clear that these were published at a later date so as to ensure that interested parties could see that they have been re-published.
Your email however highlighted that there was an error in this republishing. Whilst the right documents were published, one had been given the wrong description naming it OEMP rather than AEMP. This was an admin oversight. Thank you for bringing this to our attention, this has now been rectified.
