Enquiry

National Grid provided their draft section 48 publicity notice and draft consultation report structure to the Planning Inspectorate for comment.

Advice given

The following advice was provided.
Draft Consultation Report Structure:
It would be helpful if you could provide a summary table of all consultation and engagement undertaken (within part 5). For example, using similar headings to those used for the Richborough Connection project: Stage, When, What, Who.
There are some grammatical errors however we have not drawn attention to these as we are aware this is an early draft of the contents page/structure.
Should section 11 and 12 fall under section 10?
It is not clear where the s48 publicity will be explained and reviewed.
In regard to Appendices Part 10, are you proposing to include all responses received within the consultation report?
Are you intending on providing a list of those persons consulted during the non-statutory rounds of consultation?
Draft section 48 publicity notice:
The numbering requires review.
It would be helpful if National Grid could explain or provide an overview of the documents being consulted on (in addition to the PEI), see regulation 4(3)(e) of the Infrastructure Planning (Applications: Prescribed Forms and Procedure) Regulations 2009 as amended.
Please state the cost (for receipt of copies of the consultation documents), as required by Regulations 4(3)(g) of the Infrastructure Planning (Applications: Prescribed Forms and Procedure) Regulations 2009 as amended.
Could the language be clearer here regarding ‘Any response or representation in respect of the proposed Application’?
