DECC gave development consent on Tuesday 10 March for the 1.5GW Knottingley CCGT power station in Yorkshire. The application for development, submitted by Knottingley Power–a subsidiary of Irish state-owned electricity company ESB–was originally accepted for consideration in October 2013; the consent follows a six-month examination during which the public, statutory consultees and interested parties were all provided with the opportunity to give evidence to the Examining Authority.
The Planning Inspectorate’s chief executive Simon Ridley said that the consultation process, together with the certainty of knowing when a decision would be made, provided confidence in the planning process and supported the infrastructure improvements needed by the UK to secure its energy and future economic growth.
