As part of the preparations for our application for a Development Consent Order (DCO), we will be undertaking a range of environmental surveys across land which might be affected by the electrical connection from the EfW CHP facility to the national grid. These surveys are as much to determine where the electricity line and low-level wooden poles won’t go, in order to avoid causing unnecessary interference with agricultural activities, casting shadows on the solar energy park, and disturbing protected flora and fauna, as to decide the best route for them.
Our land agent, Carter Jonas, are in the process of contacting local landowners along the potential grid connection route to arrange access for ecologists over the next 12 months. The surveys are non-intrusive and will simply consist of a team of ecologists (usually one or two people at a time) walking around to visually inspect the area for wildlife.
The surveys will be periodic, rather than continuous, and landowners will be contacted directly in advance of the ecologists accessing their land. The ecologists will make every effort to keep to the edges of field boundaries, although they may need to inspect specific locations such as ponds, trees and/or watercourses.
These environmental surveys will inform the Environmental Impact Assessments which will be included in the DCO application as part of the Environmental Statement.
