Stage 2 Consultation – The Eggborough CCGT Project

EPL is carrying out further consultation on its proposals with the local community and other stakeholders from 12 January to 17 February 2017. This (Stage 2) consultation provides information on the following:

  • the comments received at Stage 1 and changes made to the proposals since then;
  • the decisions that have been made regarding the location of the gas-fired power station and the route corridor for the gas pipeline;
  • the layout of the gas-fired power station and the size and appearance of its main buildings;
  • the environmental effects of the proposals and how these will be prevented, reduced and where necessary, mitigated; and
  • the next steps for the proposals.

The Stage 2 consultation documents, including the Preliminary Environmental Impact (‘PEI’) Report, Some of Your Questions Answered and public exhibition display boards, are available here.

Comments on the proposals can be submitted here.

During Stage 2 we are holding a number of public exhibitions close to the site (details below) at which there will be an opportunity to meet members of the project team, view the Stage 2 consultation documents, ask questions, discuss the proposals and provide comments.
