The application to build a massive, industrialised solar power station on our beautiful coastal countryside has been submitted to the government’s national Planning Inspectorate on 16th November 2018. But it’s not a done deal – this still has to go through a very detailed national planning examination, and you can be involved.
The current stage is ‘Pre-examination’. This is where you register to become an ‘Interested Party’. It’s your only chance to have a voice in the official ‘Examination’ stage that comes later in 2019.
Registration is now open from Wednesday 19 December 2018 to Monday 28 January 2019.
Registering is easy – either online or by post. To get a paper form please call the helpline on: 0303 444 5000.
The Planning Inspectorate has published detailed advice [PDF]. It’s worth having a quick look at this so that you’re fully prepared to fill in the application.
Go to the Planning Inspectorate’s project site to fill in the form today!
It’s a very simple form – you provide your personal details and just an outline (up to 500 words) of the main points you want to make.
Here’s a sneak preview of what the online form looks like:
