Public Consultation

We have held three rounds of public consultation to get your views on our proposal. Missed them? Here’s a recap.

Your views and input on our proposed project are important to us

As part of our public consultation, we have held three rounds of community consultation events through 2016 and 2017. These events were an opportunity for members of the local community to view the latest plans, to speak directly with members of the project team where individuals required further clarity, and to comment on our proposal at that stage. Attendees were encouraged to capture their thoughts and any concerns by completing one of our feedback forms or by writing to us directly.

All the feedback received at and after the events has been carefully considered by the Project and will be incorporated where possible into the final design. A Consultation Report summarising all the comments received and how we have had regard to these were submitted alongside our application to the Planning Inspectorate in quarter 2 2018. Interim Consultation Summary Reports have also been produced which provide a high-level overview of the views expressed at each phase of consultation (see table above).
