Logo EDF Energy Nuclear Generation Limited Sizewell B Dry Fuel Store: Subsequent Applications Sizewell B Nuclear Power Station, Suffolk

Overview

Acting for EDF Energy, and building upon our notable successes in 2011 (obtaining a Secretary of State grant of planning permission for the Dry Fuel Store (DFS) Zyda Law continued its ground breaking work on the project by preparing Subsequent Applications for the discharge of various planning obligations.

Strategy

Our work included preparation of 16 Subsequent Applications supported by updated Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA). We also assisted with consultation with statutory consultees and the public.

In addition to the above, we also provided ground breaking advice on the means of securing planning approval for design changes to the DFS following the Secretary of State’s grant of planning permission. Utilising our expert knowledge of European Law, we successfully devised a multi stage consenting process, and advised on the law, policy and consultation requirements relating to the provision of further environmental information associated with design changes.

Outcome

The local planning authorities praised our advice and approach and granted approval in July 2012. The achievement of Subsequent Consent has enabled construction work on the DFS to move forward. EDF implemented the planning permission in January 2013.

Client Comment

I would have no hesitation in recommending Zyda Law.
