What happens next

The Preliminary Meeting will be held on Wednesday 10 April 2019. Invitations to this meeting have been sent to Interested Parties.

The Preliminary Meeting is held in public and concerns procedural matters only. 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, setting the timetable for the Examination including deadlines for receipt of detailed Written Representations and for comments on the Relevant Representations made by other Interested Parties, will be made after the Preliminary Meeting and will be published on this project page. It will also be available on request from [email protected] and our helpline: 0303 444 5000.

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.
