Dear Sir Re Sunnica DCO and Funding Statement due 31st May 2021. I am a member of the campaign group re the above and would like some info please. Is the Funding statement an integral part of the DCO application? I need to know what the detailed funding requirements are from an applicant for the planning inspectorate process. Can you please supply me with guidance notes for an applicant so I can check the funding statement when this is eventually available from Sunnica for public viewing. Many thanks Alan B Smith Worlington
Dear Mr Smith, Thank you for your email dated 4 May 2021 seeking further information in relation to the Applicant’s Funding Statement. Regulation 5(h) of The Infrastructure Planning (Applications: Prescribed Forms and Procedure) Regulations 2009) specifies that any application for a Development Consent Order which seeks powers to compulsory acquire land must contain a Funding Statement setting out how the Applicant intends to fund the Compulsory Acquisition (CA) of land. A Funding Statement must contain sufficient information to enable the Secretary of State to be satisfied that, if it were to grant the compulsory acquisition request, the proposed development is likely to be undertaken and not be prevented due to difficulties in sourcing and securing the necessary funding. If the application is accepted for Examination, the Examining Authority will test the Funding Statement to ensure it contains sufficient information to satisfy the Secretary of State that the Applicant has sufficient funds to acquire the land, should the Secretary of State be minded to grant CA powers. Guidance on the Funding Statement can be found in this document: Planning Act 2008: Guidance for the examination of applications for development consent in paragraphs 25 to 26. Yours sincerely
