Yorkshire and Humber CCS Cross Country Pipeline
FAO Sarah Jones, In response to the invitation to attend preliminary meeting and availability of relevant representations, North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service would like to politely decline the invitation.
With regard to the examination procedure and all further subsequent planning and installation regarding the National Grid Carbon Limited application for the Yorkshire & Humber Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Cross Country Pipeline, North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service would be grateful if we could be kept informed where;
? Planned or existing work could impact the Fire and Rescue Service?s ability to respond by road to emergency incidents within North Yorkshire.
? Planned or existing work poses an increased risk to the public.
North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service would benefit from the finalised planned layout of the CCS as a GIS Layer, if this could be provided.
If you feel that there would be significant benefit in North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service participating further in this process, or you wish to discuss this further, please contact myself as below.
Dear Mr Warren
Thank you for your email of 11 November 2014. Unfortunately we are unable to notify you regarding specific issues as the examination progresses but there are a couple of ways you can stay updated about what is happening.
I note that North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service is a statutory consultee (personal ref: YHPL-SP009) for the purposes of the examination. Statutory consultees who have not made a relevant representation and do not notify the Planning Inspectorate of their wish to become an interested party will not receive any further correspondence following the Examining Authority?s Rule 8 Letter (issued shortly following the Preliminary Meeting which is being held on the 19th November). If you do not notify the Planning Inspectorate that you wish to become and interested party, this will apply to you.
If you do request to become an interested party, once the examination is underway you will have the opportunity to provide written evidence on any of the issues that concern you, if you wish. You may request that an ?open floor? hearing is held, and to speak at it. You will be informed of the progress of the examination, and once it is concluded, you will be notified of the decision. If you wish to become an interested party we are able to change how you receive the correspondence to email so you don?t continue to receive hard copies if this is more convenient. Just let us know the preferred email contact.
My advice is should you believe you wish to make a representation to the Examining Authority during the examination you request to become an interested party in the examination. You can request to become an interested party by replying to this email.
If you do not wish to become an interested party but you would like to keep up to date with the examination you can do so by signing up to our email updates or visit the relevant project page on the National Infrastructure pages of the Planning Portal website; you can do both by following this link:
For a finalised planned layout of the CCS as a GIS Layer, I advise you contact the applicant directly as they may be able to provide the said documents; unfortunately we do not provide any copies.
I hope this information help, please contact us should you have any further questions.
