Letter received from Mr Richard Smith objecting with the proposed generating station and route corridor alignment.

Advice given

Thank you for your letter dated 5 May 2013 regarding the above project. Your letter is useful for us to monitor emerging issues in response to a pre-application proposal. As you will be aware, however, The Planning Inspectorate can accept this letter for information purposes only at this stage.
Therefore at this current stage I encourage you to contact the developer directly with comments regarding any aspects of the proposed project, as you may know the ?pre-application? stage is the best time to influence a project whether you support it, think it could be improved or oppose it.
Before submitting an application to The Planning Inspectorate, the developer is required to carry out extensive consultation on their proposals. This involves providing information about the proposal to various statutory and non statutory bodies and the wider community, responding to questions, listening to suggestions and taking these into account to influence and inform the application ultimately submitted.
I have enclosed the following advice notes which may be of interest to you, which include further information on the planning process:
Advice Note 8.1: How the process works
Advice Note 8.2: Responding to the developer?s pre-application consultation
