21 April 2020
On behalf of Suffolk Coastal Friend of the Earth - Rachel Fulcher


Dear PINS Please can you explain at what point the public will be able to see all the documents submitted by EDF Energy regarding Sizewell C. Will this be when the application goes in, or when the application is accepted? Thank you, Rachel Fulcher, Coordinator Suffolk Coastal Friends of the Earth

Advice given

Dear Rachel Fulcher Thank you for your email. I can confirm that should the application be accepted the Planning Inspectorate will publish all the application documents on the project page of the National Infrastructure Planning website as soon as practicable after the decision to accept the application has been made. These will be available under the ‘Documents’ tab. As you are aware the Applicant would then advertise the Relevant Representation period when those who wish to fully participate in the Examination must register to become an Interested Party. EDF have indicated that this period would be extended beyond the statutory 30 days minimum to allow everyone more time to read the documents through the summer months and submit their views during the Pre-examination period. Once the six month Examination period starts registered Interested Parties can then submit further Written Representations to expand on those views. Further information about the requirements for registering as an Interested Party can be found in the Planning Inspectorate’s Advice Note 8.2: attachment 1 Further information about the content of Interested Parties Written Representations can be found in the Planning Inspectorate’s Advice Note 8.4: attachment 2 Kind regards Michele Gregory Sizewell C Case Team National Infrastructure Planning
