It is understood that Powys County Council ? as the ?host? local authority for the above project, is already an ?interested party? under the terms of the Infrastructure Planning (Interested Parties) Regulations 2010 and, therefore, does not need to register formally to take part in the examination process (if this is incorrect I would be grateful if you would advise me as soon as possible in order that the Council can register.

Advice given

Thank you for your email.
As Powys County Council are the host ?B? authority for the Mynydd y Gwynt Wind Farm application, under section 102(1)(c) of the Planning Act 2008, Powys CC are automatically an interested party for the duration of the examination and therefore do not need to register.
However, as Relevant Representations help the Examining Authority with compiling its initial assessment of principle issues and
assist with knowledge of the local area, we still advise registering and submitting a Relevant Representation. The registration form also includes questions regarding participation in examination to help the case team resource appropriately.
The online registration form can be accessed by following the link below:
