Progress Power seeks planning consent extension

‘Non-material change application’ to be submitted to Secretary of State in late May

Progress Power Limited intends to submit a ‘non-material change application’ later this month to the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

This application will request an extension of 12 months to the expiry date for commencing the construction of the development permitted by of the Progress Power (Gas Fired Power Station) Order, due to the uncertainties and constraints posed by COVID-19.

No other changes are being sought to the Order.

Further information on the application and the consultation that will accompany it, will be posted in the Progress Power area of the Drax website on 28th May 2020.
