Thank you for your letter dated 16 March 2013 regarding the above project. Your letter is useful for us to monitor emerging issues in response to a pre-application proposal. As you will be aware, however, The Planning Inspectorate can accept this letter for information purposes only at this stage.
The proposed Wrexham Energy Centre project is currently at pre-application stage and is expected to be submitted to The Planning Inspectorate in late 2013.
I therefore encourage you to contact the developer directly at this stage of the process as this is the best time to influence a project.
Before submitting an application to The Planning Inspectorate, the developer is required to carry out extensive consultation on their proposals. This involves providing information about the proposal to various statutory and non statutory bodies and the wider community, responding to questions, listening to suggestions and taking these into account to influence and inform the application ultimately submitted. The length of time taken to prepare and consult on the project will vary depending upon its scale and complexity.
I have enclosed the following advice notes which may be of interest to you, which include further information on the planning process:
Advice Note 8.1: How the process works
Advice Note 8.2: Responding to the developer?s pre-application consultation
I hope the information provided has been of use to you, please do not hesitate to contact us again should you have any further questions.
