Advice given

PROPOSED APPLICATION FOR A DEVELOPMENT CONSENT ORDER FOR ELECTRIC LINES BETWEEN POWYS AND SHROPSHIRE
Thank you for your letter and copy of your feedback dated 22nd May 2011 regarding your thoughts on this development. It is helpful for the Infrastructure Planning Commission (IPC) to be kept notified of the progress of this application from local stakeholders. Your comments have been noted and will be kept for future reference.
At the pre-application stage of the process, the developer is under a duty to consult statutory bodies and the local community. If you are or are not satisfied with the consultation I would advise you to speak to your Local Authority as they will be invited to submit an ?Adequacy of Consultation Representation? once an application is submitted. I would also advise you to continue communications with the applicant as by law they must take into account all responses they receive.
Once an application is submitted and has been accepted to go forward to examination, the public are invited to register their interest and submit a ?Relevant Representation? to the Commission with a summary of their comments. More detailed representations can then be made during the examination stage. Further information can also be found on our website: www.independent.gov.uk/infrastructure.
If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact us or myself on the phone number or email provided
