How have we included local community and stakeholder feedback in our plans?

The feedback we have received played an essential part in shaping our plans for the replacement facility. The topics you commented on covered many areas including:

  • the need for the project
  • the design and appearance of the replacement facility and chimney stack
  • landscaping
  • environment
  • the cooling system
  • traffic and transport
  • community benefits
  • the consultation process itself.

As a result of public consultation, we made the decision to choose the best available technology for emissions cleaning which makes this a benchmark facility and one of the most efficient in the UK. We listened to your feedback and choose to design a modern facility aiming to reduce visual impacts.
