Enquiry

Would like to know if the new power station will have to comply with the LAWS OF THE LAND or will they be allowed to cover-up incidents, falsify documents, lie in a court of law, withhold evidence and behave as if they are above the law, and will go even as far that they pressured/corrupted my so called solicitor/Barrister

Advice given

The IPC is an impartial body whose role is to examine applications for Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIPs) in accordance with the Planning Act 2008 (the Act) and its associated legislation.
If a proposed development (or part of it) falls within section 14-30 of the Act, it is considered a NSIP and development consent is required. Whether a power station development falls within the definition of a NSIP depends on the facts. For generating stations, section 15 will also need to be considered and the conditions met if the proposed development is to be considered a NSIP.
The IPC cannot advise on whether a proposal constitutes a NSIP requiring development consent. It is for developers to take their own legal advice upon which they can rely. For further information on the IPC's policy on giving Section 51 advice please visit our website at attachment 1
For detailed information on the 2008 Planning Act process please see the advice and guidance section of our website (attachment 2). You may find Advice Note 8 particularly useful as it provides an overview of the whole process.
If you have any queries relating to procedural matters we are happy to advise.
