Thank you for your consultation regarding the above development. Public Health England (PHE) welcomes the opportunity to comment on your proposals at this stage of the project and can confirm that:- With respect to Registration of Interest documentation, we are reassured that earlier comments raised by us on 3rd December 2018 have been addressed. In addition, we acknowledge that the Environmental Statement (ES) has not identified any issues which could significantly affect public health. PHE is satisfied with the methodology used to undertake the environmental assessment. Emissions from the proposed development will be controlled via the Environmental Permitting regime, under the provisions of the Environmental Protection Act 1990. The permitting regime is administered by the Environment Agency (EA), separately from Nationally Significant Infrastructure Planning and PHE will be formally consulted by the EA as part of the permitting process. We will provide detailed comments at that stage. We have no additional comments to make at this stage and can confirm that we have chosen NOT to register an interest with the Planning Inspectorate on this occasion. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
