24 April 2014 – Planning Inspectorate accepts Hirwaun Power application

The Planning Inspectorate has accepted an application by Hirwaun Power Ltd for an Order Granting Development Consent for the proposed Hirwaun Power Station.

The Inspectorate has decided that the application meets the standards required to be formally accepted for examination. This follows its consideration of, amongst other things, the extensive consultation that has been carried out.

The Project now moves into a pre-examination phase. This means that members of the public will be able to register with the Planning Inspectorate and provide a summary of their views of the application in writing by the deadline, which is 29th May 2014. Everyone who has registered and made a relevant representation will be invited to attend a preliminary meeting run and chaired by an Inspector.

The pre-examination stage of the process is expected to take approximately three months. Further updates will be posted on this website.
