We are seeking consent for the construction and operation of Wheelabrator Kemsley K3 (K3) and the development of a new waste-to-energy facility, Wheelabrator Kemsley North (WKN). While these are separate facilities, we are seeking consent for both under one Development Consent Order (DCO) application.
A DCO is a national consenting process, similar to a major planning application, for which developers can apply under the Planning Act 2008 to construct a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP). It means that applications are considered and determined at a national level by the relevant Secretary of State.
Statement of Community Consultation published
As part of our work to prepare for consultation, we have produced a Statement of Community Consultation (SoCC) which explains how we have consulted the public on our proposals for K3 and WKN.
