Planning application submission
We have now submitted our planning application to Selby District Council and East Riding of Yorkshire Council for the onshore elements of our project.
The submission of our application comes after speaking and listening to local communities during a public consultation in spring 2021 and public information events in February of this year.
Following our planning application submission, East Riding of Yorkshire Council has started its statutory period of consultation on our proposals. You can view our application and share your comments by visiting the East Riding of Yorkshire Council planning portal and inputting our application’s reference number: 22/01990/STPLFE.
Selby District Council has also started its statutory period of consultation on our proposals. You can view our application and share your comments by visiting the Selby District Council planning portal and inputting our application’s reference number: 2022/0711/EIA.
Once the consultations are over, the Councils will then decide whether to approve our proposed project. We expect the decisions to be made in the autumn.
What our planning application covers
We have applied for planning permission for the proposed converter station and a section of onshore cable from Selby District Council and the majority of the onshore cable from East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
See the Our proposal page for more detail on the converter station and cable.
Our application has been made under the Town and Country Planning Act.
Planning permission for the offshore cable
The project has also submitted a marine licence application to the Marine Maritime Organisation for SEGL2’S submarine cable, which makes up most of its 505km total length. This is the offshore element of the project.
Much like planning permission onshore, this process involves a period of technical appraisal and consultation which will inform the outcome of the application.
You can view our marine licence application on the public register by quoting the project reference number: MLA/2022/00273.
