Anglian Water’s DCO application is imminent!

The Save Honey Hill group

We have been working and fund-raising for nearly three years and now we have a date! Anglian Water has indicated that their Application to relocate the sewage works will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate on 30 January 2023.

It is not exactly a wonderful New Year’s present, but we are determined to put forward the best possible case to object to the proposal. The Planning Inspector (PI) has 28 days to review the application and decide whether to accept it for examination. He or she will publish the timetable and how to register to become an Interested Party to make a Relevant Representation (that’s the way we can state our case). The process is likely to start in March.

Thank you for the amazing support you have given us which has made it possible to get legal advice so far and more advice on our Representations once the documents are published.

You can see more about the process of a Development Consent Order (DCO) on the National Infrastructure website and we will keep you updated on our blog. We also aim to hold a General Meeting early in the year but in the meantime contact us through info@savehoneyhill.org if you have any questions.

All good wishes for Christmas and 2023.
