Update on information submitted to the Secretary of State for Transport published

Published

03 Feb 2022

Our documents cover the areas that the Secretary of State requested further information on:

  1. Alternatives
  2. Local and national policies
  3. Carbon budgets and climate
  4. Environmental information
  5. Any other matters

We have looked at changes in circumstances - including our baseline surveys, policy or guidance - since we last submitted information during the planning process to see if our conclusions on the impacts of the scheme remain valid.  

We have continued to undertake routine surveys including ecology and groundwater monitoring to ensure information is kept as up to date as possible. The survey reports are being finalised and will be submitted to the Secretary of State shortly.

People will be invited to comment on our documents when these are published. 

You can read the full documents on the Planning Inspectorate website.
