Consultation 2024

Throughout the development of the project, we have worked closely with the community, and we are grateful that they have taken the time to engage with us and provide feedback on our proposals at both our previous consultations.

As a result of this feedback, our ongoing wider engagement with community members and the findings from environmental surveys and assessments, we have amended the proposals. We are now carrying out the statutory consultation on the finalised proposals and draft planning application prior to submission to Planning Environment Decisions Wales (PEDW).
