Advice sought regarding EIA regulation 24 Transboundary Impacts

Advice given

Dear Richard
SIGNIFICANT TRANSBOUNDARY EFFECTS
REGULATION 24 OF THE INFRASTRUCTURE PLANNING (ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS ASSESSMENT) REGULATIONS 2009 (?the EIA Regulations?)
HINKLEY POINT C (?the proposed Development?)
EDF ENERGY (?the Developer?)
The Infrastructure Planning Commission (?the IPC?) is aware that the proposed Development requires an environmental impact assessment (EIA) and has taken account of Regulation 24 of the EIA Regulations: Development with significant transboundary effects. More information on our transboundary process may be found in the IPC?s Advice Note 12: Transboundary impacts consultation, available on our website.
This is the formal notification under Regulation 24 of the EIA Regulations that, on the basis of the information currently provided by the Developer, the IPC is of the view that the proposed Development is not likely to have significant effects on the environment in another EEA State. For your information, we enclose a copy of the screening matrix informing this approach. Please be aware that the IPC?s duty under Regulation 24 continues throughout the application process.
If you have any queries regarding any of the above, please do not hesitate to contact us.
With regards
Sheila Twidle
EIA and Land Rights Manager
