Great Yarmouth Third River Crossing

What happens next

You will be able to view the Relevant Representations here shortly.

The Applicant (Norfolk County Council) must certify to the Planning Inspectorate that it has complied with its application notification requirements.

The Examining Authority, once appointed, will carry out an Initial Assessment of Principal Issues derived from its reading of the application and the Relevant Representations received and set a date for the Preliminary Meeting.

Interested Parties will receive an invitation to the Preliminary Meeting which is to discuss procedural matters only, and is held in public. It is not essential to attend the Preliminary Meeting. Whether or not an Interested Party chooses to attend the Preliminary Meeting, they will still be sent details of how to further take part in the Examination.

The Procedural Decision made after the Preliminary Meeting will be published on our website and will also be available on request from [email protected] and our helpline: 0303 444 5000. Importantly, this Procedural Decision will set the timetable for the Examination. The Examination Timetable will, amongst other things, set deadlines for receipt of detailed Written Representations and for comments on the Relevant Representations made by other Interested Parties.

If you are an Interested Party, either because you are one of the specific bodies cited in s102 of the Planning Act 2008 or have submitted a Relevant Representation, you will receive notifications about the Examination and a copy of the Secretary of State’s decision on the application once that is made.

If you have a legal interest in land affected by a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project and:

  • have not been identified by the Applicant; and
  • did not register to become an Interested Party;

then you can make a request to the Examining Authority to become an Interested Party under s102A of the Planning Act 2008.

The applicant has sent us an email explaining that some of the notifications they sent about the opportunity to make Relevant Representations were returned undelivered, and that some parties had not been served notice. The applicant has sent or re-sent further notifications to those parties only, and has allowed more time for them to make their representations. If you have received a further notification and wish to make a representation, please contact us at [email protected] or telephone 0303 444 5000.
