Blythe Park Power 950MW Combined Cycle Gas Turbine Blythe Park Staffordshire

Overview

Blythe Park Power were proposing a 950MW CCGT generating station. They sought expert advice from Zyda Law in respect of connection and construction agreements with the National Grid and on the scope of an application made under the Electricity Act 1989, Section 36 and accompanying environmental statement.

Strategy

We negotiated changes to both the construction and connection agreements, including phased development and payments, and advised a commercial application strategy for client endorsement. We advised on the (then) newly emerging IPC development consent regime including pre-application consultation requirements.  We also advised on the approach to be taken to local objections and requests for further information received from the relevant planning authority.

Outcome

In the face of growing opposition against this scheme, the client decided to withdraw the application.
