Scoping Report

Scoping Report

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.

  • The Scoping Report for East Anglia TWO can be viewed on the Planning Inspectorate website here.
  • We received the Scoping Opinion from PINS in December 2017. You can view this here.
