Advice given

We note the concerns you have raised regarding the capacity of your organisation to engage with the Sizewell C DCO application process. As you may be aware, the process for applying for a DCO application is set out in the Planning Act 2008 and the timing of submission is at the discretion of the Applicant. With regard to the DCO application documentation and your request for a copy to be provided to you during the acceptance stage, it is for the Applicant to decide whether the application material is shared with stakeholders at the time of submission. Similarly, any request for financial reparation through an existing Planning Performance Agreement (PPA) is a matter you will need to discuss with the Applicant. We therefore suggest that you contact the Applicant directly. With regard to the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, please refer to the Planning Inspectorate’s published guidance which is updated regularly as the situation develops: attachment 1
