From North Lincolnshire Council

Representation

North Lincolnshire Council, as a host local authority, was consulted on this project at the pre-application stage in accordance with Section 42 of the Planning Act 2008 and provided a pre-application response dated 16 January 2019. Having reviewed the application documents, the proposed development does not appear to have altered significantly following the pre-application stage and as such the comments raised in the council's previous response are considered to still be relevant. I can confirm that North Lincolnshire Council does not wish to raise any objection to the principle of the proposed scheme. The main issues of potential impact identified during the pre-application stage, and which still apply, in respect of this scheme are as follows: - Air Quality; - Ecology (particularly with regards to potential impact on the Humber Estuary SAC, SPA an/or Ramsar site); - Flood Risk/Drainage; and - Cultural Heritage (archaeological investigation/mitigation) North Lincolnshire Council will produce a Local Impact Report and as such do reserve the right to raise additional issues/concerns following full consideration of the application documents.
