On behalf of Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board I am seeking advice on how to register as an interested party for the Inspection of the DCO submission to be made by HNP imminently.
I have accessed your web site but cannot find the online portal to register, could you please advise.

Advice given

The proposed DCO Application for the Wylfa Newydd Development has not yet been submitted to the Planning Inspectorate.
Upon receipt of a DCO Application, the Planning Inspectorate has 28 days to assess whether an Application can be accepted for Examination. When the Planning Inspectorate accepts an Application for Examination, it is the Applicant’s duty to advertise the Relevant Representation period and provide details about how to register to become an Interested Party. The Relevant Representation period is the time you have to register to become an Interested Party and this is when the form will be made available on the Wylfa project page of our website.
The publicity notice will tell you when the deadline is however you can also find out about the registration period via Twitter or email alert if you have signed up for this service on the Wylfa project page of our website.
