Dear Mr Jones
Thank you for your email 8 July 2013 regarding above application. I am writing on behalf of the Case Manager for Wrexham Energy Centre Project.
As you are probably aware Wrexham Energy Centre project is currently at the pre-application stage of the Planning Act 2008 process; therefore the application has not been formally submitted to the Planning Inspectorate yet.
I understand that your concerns relate to non-statutory consultation which is currently being undertaken by Wrexham Power Limited ' the applicant'.
We appreciate being informed and copied into correspondence in relation to Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIP). Please note however that during the pre-application stage, the developer is your main point of contact. I therefore suggest that you make the developer aware of your concerns in relation to their consultation.
If you however feel that consultation carried out is in any way inadequate or should you have any other concerns, I suggest that you raise it with your local planning authority/ies. In addition, once the application is formally submitted, the Planning Inspectorate will then request comments on the applicant?s adequacy of consultation from the local planning authorities in the surrounding area regarding the proposal.
Furthermore, if the application is accepted for examination there will be an opportunity for everyone to make a relevant representation in order to become an interested party for the project. Relevant representations can include comments on whether you agree or disagree with the application.

Advice Note 16 - the pre-application consultation
I hope that information is helpful and please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any further questions.
