Scottish Power Renewables has brought forward the application date for East Anglia ONE North and deferred the application date for East Anglia TWO.
This means that the consultation for both projects can be run concurrently, providing more clarity on the two projects and reducing the consultation burden for stakeholders and communities. It also means there will be greater clarity on cumulative impact and interactions between the projects. This approach allows us to engage in a longer period of pre-application consultation, which was requested in previous feedback contributions.
We plan to run combined consultation, stakeholder engagement and a parallel Preliminary Environmental Information Report (PEIR) consultation process for East Anglia ONE North and East Anglia TWO.
Whilst we are consulting on both East Anglia ONE North and East Anglia TWO in parallel, we are also exploring the possibility of applying for consent for East Anglia ONE North and East Anglia TWO at the same time and we will advise on an application date in due course.
Scoping Report - November 2017
As part of the consenting process we submitted Scoping Reports for East Anglia TWO and East Anglia ONE North to the Planning Inspectorate (PINS) for their consideration in November 2017. These Scoping Reports requested a scoping opinion to agree the methodology for undertaking the full Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA). These assessments form part of the Environmental Statement which will be submitted as part of the full Development Consent application. The Scoping Reports provided a clear description of our proposed infrastructure, and connection route to the electricity transmission network. The scoping process also sought stakeholder opinions on the areas to be investigated in detail when undertaking our Environmental Impact Assessments.
