We secured recommendation to approve from DoE Strategic Projects team and endorsement from all of its consultees in July 2015. The Minister subsequently rejected this and issued a notice of opinion to refuse. Following a hearing the PAC recommended approval in March 2017. DfI issued planning permission and it was the subject of a successful judicial review.
Further environmental information has been submitted in early 2019 and the application is under re-consideration by DfI.
