EDF Energy is pleased to confirm that we have received consent from DECC for the planning application for Sutton Bridge B power station, which is an important milestone.
EDF Energy had amended its existing application for consent to construct and operate a new natural gas fired power station on land adjacent to the existing Sutton Bridge power station in Lincolnshire.
The amended application was submitted to the Department of Energy and Climate Change (“DECC”) on 18th November 2013 under Section 36 of the Electricity Act.
As we have previously stated, the project remains subject to an investment decision. The timing for this is dependent upon a number of factors, including progressing other aspects of the project and market and regulatory developments and has not been determined at this time. We will of course continue to communicate with the local community as the project progresses and as decisions are made.
