New planning applications submitted for Nemo Link®

Nemo Link® has submitted new planning applications to Thanet and Dover District Councils for the development of an electricity interconnector between the UK and Belgium. Applications F/TH/13/0144 and DOV/13/00143 have therefore been withdrawn.

The new applications do not present any significant changes to those submitted in March 2013, however Nemo Link has responded to a request by the Environment Agency to alter the method of cable installation it will use within a small section of the Pegwell Bay Country Park. In addition, the previous applications included areas that will be used to aid construction on a temporary basis. These proposed construction areas were shown on the drawings previously submitted, were assessed in the Environmental Impact Assessment and included within the Environmental Statement. However they have now also been included within the red line application boundary.

Copies of the documents for the new applications F/TH/13/0760 and DOV/13/00759 can be found at http://www.nemo-link.com/download-submission/.
