Our application for a non-material change to the Hinkley Point C Development Consent Order seeks approval for changes to the layout of buildings on the Hinkley Point C site. This application will be decided by the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy following a period of public consultation.

Consultation will run from 28 July to 4 September (inclusive) and comments on the application should be sent directly to the Planning Inspectorate.

What is being proposed?

The changes to the buildings layout are as a result of reviewing learning from our other plants within the EDF fleet, incorporating evolving safety practice and security measures, optimising the design of the buildings and allowing for the retention of the Heavy Lift Crane until the end of the construction.

The changes are all proposed to the smaller buildings within the complex which surround the main power station and are due to begin construction from 2022 onwards.

The changes we’re proposing fall into 4 categories – these are new buildings, relocated buildings, deleted buildings and larger buildings. The plans for approval also show 3 buildings which are reverting back to their approved location.

You can find more detail in the documents and plans below.
