We will be seeking approval for an amendment to the generating capacity and tonnage throughput increase of Wheelabrator Kemsley (K3) and the development of a new waste-to-energy facility, Wheelabrator Kemsley North (WKN). These are separate facilities, and we will be seeking consent for both under one Development Consent Order (DCO) application process. We believe this allows people, stakeholders and the Planning Inspectorate to more effectively assess both projects together.
A DCO is part of a national consenting process, similar to a planning application, which developers can apply for under the Planning Act 2008 to undertake a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP). It means that applications are considered and determined at a national level.
Statement of Community Consultation published
As part of our work to prepare for consultation, we have prepared a Statement of Community Consultation (SoCC) which explains how we’re consulting the public on our proposals for K3 and WKN.
