22 December 2020 Dear Sir/Madam, Sunnica Energy Farm
We held a statutory consultation on our proposals for Sunnica Energy Farm between 22 September and 18 December 2020. It has come to our attention that due to a technical error you were not contacted as part of this statutory consultation.
We would therefore like to invite your parish council to share its views on the scheme as part of the consultation.
Because of the delay in contacting you, we welcome your feedback on the scheme, in writing, prior to 23:59 on Friday 29 January 2021.
We originally presented proposals for Sunnica Energy Farm, a new solar energy farm and battery storage facility connecting to the Burwell National Grid Substation in Cambridgeshire, at a non- statutory consultation in summer 2019. Since then, we considered the feedback we received from the non-statutory consultation and have continued with our environmental impact assessments. We have updated our proposals, taking into account the consultation feedback and the outputs of the assessments.
This is a statutory consultation process that we are required to carry out by the Planning Act 2008 because the project is classified as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP). Following the consultation, we will have regard to the feedback received through this process as we develop the final scheme. We will then prepare and submit an application for a Development Consent Order (DCO). The planning process for the application will be managed by the Planning Inspectorate (PINS) on behalf of the Secretary of State for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
The booklet enclosed with this letter sets out more details about our proposals. We have also enclosed a consultation questionnaire if you would prefer to respond this way.
