Scheme reaches next milestone this week

3 October 2020

Following the launch of an 18-month procurement process in July, yesterday we reached another milestone with the conclusion of the six-month Development Consent Order (DCO) examination.

The panel of inspectors who have been hearing evidence throughout the examination now have three months to write a report with a recommendation for the Secretary of State for Transport, who is expected to make a decision in spring 2020.

To find out more information on the examination process please visit the Planning Inspectorate’s website.
