Please could you clarify why you have written to the Police and Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire about the project
The Office of the Police & Crime Commissioner for South Yorkshire is listed as a prescribed consultee for this project and therefore we have a statutory duty to consult you in accordance with Section 42 of the Planning Act 2008 (the 2008 Act) and Schedule 1 of The Infrastructure Planning (Applications: Prescribed Forms and Procedure) Regulations 2009 (as amended) (the APFP Regulations).

You have now received the Rule 6 letter inviting you to the Preliminary Meeting (PM) to be held on Wednesday 22 April 2015 to discuss how the application is to be examined. Following the PM, the Examining Authority (ExA) will issue the rule 8 letter confirming the timetable for the examination and provide an opportunity for statutory parties (yourself included) to confirm whether they wish to be an Interested Party and participate in the examination of this project. Should you not wish to be an Interested Party after receipt of the Rule 8 letter, you will only receive correspondence if there is a change to the examination timetable as set out in the Rule 8 letter and when the ExA issues the Section 99 letter which confirms the closing of the examination period.

Further information on the applicable planning legislation can be found on our website, via the following link: [attachment 1]

Please note this reply will be published as section 51 advice under the Planning Act 2008 on the project page of the Planning Portal.

Query regarding the status of a local authority that has missed the deadline to register as an interested party
Relevant Representations closed 12 February 2015 and as the deadline has now passed you cannot register through the relevant representations process.

As a neighbouring Local Authority you are not automatically registered as an interested party in the process. However, as a statutory consultee you may write to the Examining Authority and request to become an interested party for this application. You will receive an invitation to the Preliminary Meeting in due course and I have attached Advice Notes which may be of use:

Advice note one: Local impact reports

How the process works
Advice note 8.4: Influencing how an application will be examined ? the Preliminary Meeting
Advice note 8.5: Participating in the examination

You may also find the following DCLG Guidance document of use: Planning Act 2008: examination of applications for development consent


You may wish to submit a Local Impact Report and if so, should prioritise preparation of this irrespective of whether the local authority considers the development would have a positive or negative impact on your area. You may also submit on behalf of your local authority a separate written representation if you wish to express a particular view on whether the application should be granted. Deadlines for these documents will be set out in the Rule 8 letter, which will be issued as soon as practicable following the Preliminary Meeting and the letter will also outline key dates for the Examination.

Please find attached a letter sent to the applicant, providing s51 advice relating to the draft documents for the White Rose Carbon Capture and Storage Project
Further to our meeting yesterday, and on behalf of Iwan and the team, please find attached our comments on your draft documents submitted in August.

Thank you for hosting and helping to arrange yesterday?s round-table meeting and hope it proved worthwhile in identifying outstanding issues prior to your proposed submission.

Without prejudice to any decisions by the Secretary of State or Examining Authority, and notwithstanding all attached comments, the two key issues that we would recommend you address before submission are:

1) Air emissions modelling working closely with both EA (permitting) and Natural England, to ensure that the necessary information is available with the application
2) The mechanism to control the use of the power station under ?air mode?.

One additional matter I wish to raise further to the discussion on item 2) above is your consideration of the National Policy Statements. At the meeting we gave advice in relation to your reliance on the Energy Act 2013 legislation to limit any operation in ?air mode? to 6 months, notwithstanding your advice that the primary purpose of air mode is to enable start up to ?oxy-mode?. We advised that you explicitly cover how the Energy Act would act as a mechanism for limiting such operation, particularly in relation to the Habitats Regulations issues discussion, and also in general.

Having discussed the issue further following the meeting, I also wish to advise you to test your application against the National Policy Statements prior to submission to ensure you are consistent with the policy on carbon capture for coal fired power stations. In particular, please the NPS EN-2 for Fossil Fuels Electricity Generating Infrastructure paragraphs 2.3.6 ? 2.3.12.

[attachment 1]

We are happy to discuss this further and do contact the team if you wish to do so.

Emails received from Capture Power Ltd on 12 June, 18 July and 3 September 2014 regarding section 42 (s42) consultation undertaken by the applicant.
We write further to your emails dated 12 June, 18 July and 3 September 2014 regarding section 42 (s42) consultation undertaken by the applicant on the White Rose Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project.

These emails broadly set out that the applicant has undertaken, or is currently undertaking, the following rounds of consultation pursuant to s42 of the Planning Act 2008:

i) Prescribed consultees, s43 local authorities and certain non-prescribed consultees - 17 June to 15 July 2014 (as set out in your email dated 12 June 2014)
ii) s44 parties - 22 July to 19 August 2014 (email dated 18 July 2014)
iii) Site notices erected in areas relevant to unknown land ownership interests and further letters to parties whose original letters for the section 42 consultations in June and July 2014 could not be delivered by Royal Mail - 5 September to 6 October 2014 (email dated 3 September 2014)

Together with the above, the emails also contained what was described as ?s46 notifications?.

As you correctly state in your email dated 3 September 2014 the Planning Inspectorate formally acknowledged the s46 notification included within your email of 12 June 2014, however the applicant is awaiting formal acknowledgement of the ?s46 notifications? contained within your emails dated 18 July and 3 September 2014.

Please note that the requirement within s46, in summary, is for applicants to inform the Planning Inspectorate before they begin s42 consultation. This requirement was satisfied by your first s46 notification which accompanied your email of 12 June 2014. If s42 consultation is carried out in phases, as in this instance, there is no requirement to inform the Planning Inspectorate before each phase. The Planning Inspectorate will therefore not formally acknowledge the ?s46 notifications? that accompanied your emails dated 18 July and 3 September 2014 as that could have implications for any consultation undertaken before these (i.e. the first two rounds of s42 consultation). If the Planning Inspectorate were to acknowledge the latter two ?s46 notifications? it might, for example, be interpreted as meaning that the applicant were starting again with the new notifications for a new/modified application and thereby ?writing off? any previous consultation. The Planning Inspectorate clearly presume that this is not the case, however do advise if otherwise.

As such, and in summary, the Planning Inspectorate note the emails which set out the consultation dates of the second and third rounds of s42 consultation (emails dated 18 July and 3 September 2014), however it is only the first s46 notification (accompanying your email dated 12 June 2014) that will be treated as formal under s46 of the Planning Act 2008.

Also, it is noted that within the draft Consultation Report issued to the Planning Inspectorate on 16 July 2014 that Chapter 9 is titled ?Stage 2 - ?Formal? consultation: section 46 ?duty to notify secretary of state of proposed application?. In sections 9.1 to 9.4 of the Report (including Table 9.1: s46 notification dates) the applicant sets out all the dates they sent s46 notifications to the Planning Inspectorate. Given the above it is advised that within the Consultation Report you may wish to refer to the first s46 notification sent to the Planning Inspectorate to demonstrate that you have complied with the statute. However, by referring to the latter two s46 notifications as formal this may create confusion and, instead, you may wish to simply advise that you kept the Planning Inspectorate informed of each subsequent phase of consultation via email.

Enquiry received via email
Enquiry regarding pre-application consulation.
The proposal is currently at pre-application stage of the Planning Act 2008 (as amended); therefore an application has not yet been formally submitted. Moreover, at this stage the applicant, Capture Power Limited is your first point of contact until the application is formally submitted to the Planning Inspectorate.

Please find the applicant's contact details below:

Email Address: [email protected]
Telephone Number: 0800 169 5290

You may wish to contact your relevant local planning authority/ies as they may be able to provide you with more details on your enquiry.

Please note that once the application has been formally submitted to the Planning Inspectorate, and if accepted for examination, you will be able to become an interested party ?IP? by submitting your relevant representation.

The purpose of relevant representation is not only an opportunity to become an IP but to express your views on whether you agree or disagree with the proposed development directly to the appointed Examining Authority ?ExA?.

You may find it helpful looking at Advice Notes 8.1- 8.3 which explain in more detail how the process works and how to become involved.

White Rose CCS (Drax)
Enquiry received via email
I note from Advice Note 6 (version 5) that the Planning Inspectorate will look at draft documentation prior to submission and actively encourages this. Is there a timescale by which the Planning Inspectorate will respond to a developer following submission of draft documentation.
Thank you for your query received on the 21 June 2013. I can advise you that the Planning Inspectorate would normally provide comments on the draft documents within a period of 6 weeks of receipt, therefore we would ask that any prospective applicant submits draft documents well in advance of the submission date so that any comment the Planning Inspectorate may have can be considered. Further more we would ask that prior warning is given before submission so that we can allocate resources to it.

It is also advised that a prospective applicant may want to plan for several rounds of draft document submissions to gain maximum feedback from the Planning Inspectorate.

In addition I can advise that useful documents to see in draft include the Development Consent Order, Explanatory Memorandum, Consultation Report and Statement of Community Consultation. Please note, although useful to see the Environmental Statement the Planning Inspectorate do not provide comment. Finally, it is beneficial that any draft documents submitted are as complete as possible, i.e. important appendices are included.

I hope that you find this information beneficial, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any further queries on the information set out above.

Enquiry received via email
Request by Jim Doyle for a technical review of the White Rose Carbon Capture and Storage project's Statement of Community Consultation (SoCC)
The Planning Inspectorate provided the following advice on the applicant's draft Statement of Community Consultation:

1) You may wish to include information on which local authorities under s.47(2) of the Planning Act 2008, as amended (the Act) you have consulted with regard to the content of the SoCC.

2) Further to the above advice, to comply with s.47(5) of the Act you will need to include evidence in your Consultation Report, submitted with your application, that you have had regard to the responses from the relevant local authorities when developing your consultation strategy and SoCC. We also advise you include your reasoning in the Consultation Report of any advice from a local authority that hasn?t been followed. CLG Guidance on pre-application consultation 2009 (paragraph 45). I raise it now so that you are aware of the audit you should keep as you progress your consultation.

3) Although your SoCC states that you will engage with community groups in the area, there is no specific information on how you plan to engage with hard to reach communities. CLG Guidance specifically covers this area. You may wish to consider how your SoCC, and in due course your Consultation Report, demonstrates your strategy for such groups, for example groups that don?t have access to the internet, have limited literacy skills or due to disabilities are unable to partake in your public events.


4) Your SoCC could also address whether documents will be made available in different languages or other formats, such as audio or Braille. You may consider making such material available. (Please refer to CLG Guidance on pre-application consultation 2009 paragraphs 60-63).

5) May I also draw your attention to paragraph 50 of CLG Guidance on pre-application consultation 2009 that states that the developer should aim to capture the views of those who live, work in or otherwise use the area. I note in your SoCC that there is no specific reference to consulting local small businesses or leisure users. Accessing these groups may be something you would like to consider. You might also consider how you will consult local employers.

6) Please note that the SoCC needs to be published in such a manner that may be prescribed to comply with s.47(6)(b) of the Act
