Wrexham Energy Centre
I'm sending you this e-mail to say why on earth would anyone want to tear up our beautiful countryside, North Wales is for the people who live here not for outsiders to come and put eyesores in Wrexham and make money, just reopen the recently closed nuclear ,coal and oil plants which already have pylons built in the rest of the UK.
I live in Marchwiel I've lived here for 46 years, we have views of Cheshire and Shropshire how dare outsiders come here and try to spoil our rural villages, We also have Erddig Hall which belongs to the National Trust. The five star Plassey Craft and Caravan Park, and Golf Club, Bangor on Dee Race Course.
As this gas fired power station WILL NOT benefit anyone in Wales, please just put it somewhere else, all it will do for us is make us ill, lesson tourism also upset our wildlife habitats such as swans, owls, newts, badgers, bats etc. Also our farmers and people who run livery and a riding school in the area will be effected.
There are better options for the Industrial Estate that could genuinely achieve the benefits with no requirements to spoil our environment e.g. a much smaller sustainable low carbon energy efficient plant.
As it is now we have bad reception for TV and Laptops, and we DON'T WANT noise from cable crackling and humming due to corona discharge, made worst by damp weather. Radio and TV interference.
This project breaks many of the Holford rules. There is also this FRACKING further down the line? Earthquakes/water supply risks, We DO NOT WANT 400kv SUPERSIZE 47 METRE HIGH TOWER PYLONS.
THERE IS NO WELCOME IN THE HILLSIDE FOR THIS POWER STATION, EVEN IF THE WELSH ASSEMBLY WOULD LIKE THIS TO HAPPEN, BUILD IT IN THE AREAS THAT NEED THE SUPPLY LET THEM HAVE THE THREAT OF ILL HEALTH AND LOSS OF PROPERTY PRICES GOING DOWN, BEAUTY SPOTS, WILDLIFE, AND TOURISM BEING SPOILT.
Many pensioner live in my village, good people who deserve to have peace, please look somewhere else.

Thank you for your e-mail dated 10 June 2013 in regard to the above project, please accept my apologies for the delay in replying to you. Your e-mail is useful for us to monitor emerging issues in response to a pre-application proposal. As you may be aware, however, The Planning Inspectorate can accept this letter for information purposes only at this stage.
The proposed Wrexham Energy Centre is currently at the pre-application stage and is expected to be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate in late 2013. I therefore encourage you to continue to contact the developer directly at this stage of the process as this is the best time to influence a project. I am aware that, to date the applicant has carried out informal consultation on this project.
At the pre-application stage of the process, the developer is required to carry out extensive statutory consultation (under s42, 44 and 47 of the Planning Act 2008) on the proposals before submitting their application to the Planning Inspectorate. This involves providing information about the proposal to various statutory and non-statutory bodies and the wider community, and to have regard to questions and suggestions made in order 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.
Once the application has been formally submitted to the Planning Inspectorate a period of 28 days is given to decide whether to ?accept? the application to proceed to Examination. Part of this assessment will consider whether the applicant has adequately complied with their duty to consult and have taken account of any relevant responses from persons they are required to consult under s42, 44 and 47 of the Planning Act 2008.
I have provided copies of the following Planning Inspectorate Advice Notes which may be of interest to you. These include further information on the planning process.
