The Sizewell C Project
Mr Howard provided the Planning Inspectorate with his comments on the sizewell scheme.
As this scheme is currently at the pre-application stage, you should ensure that the comments you have sent to the Planning Inspectorate are also directed to the developer, EDF Energy. The developer is currently undertaking their statutory pre-application consultation, and will have to show how they have taken any comments they have received into account when they submit their application to the Planning Inspectorate. Please see attachment 1 for details of how to contact EDF and their consultation program.
If the application is accepted by the Planning Inspectorate for Examination, the developer will publicise the acceptance and you will be able to register as an Interested Party with the Planning Inspectorate. Once you have registered as an Interested Party, the Planning Inspectorate will inform you of the progress of the project and invite you to make written representations and attend any hearings which may be held. The Examining Authority will have regard to representations made when forming their recommendation to the Secretary of State.
Advice Note 8.2 provides information about how to engage with the developer at the pre-application stage of the process: attachment 2.
Also see our legislation and advice page (attachment 3) for further information about our process and how you can have your say.
