Planning Inspectorate accepts Progress Power Development Consent Order Application

The Planning Inspectorate has accepted an application by Progress Power Ltd for an Order Granting Development Consent for the proposed Progress Power Station on Eye Airfield and its related infrastructure.

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 consultation that has been carried out by Progress Power.

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. 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.
