7. Consultation process and next steps

Consultation

We have commenced a formal period of consultation on these proposals. The pre-application consultation period began on 4th August 2021 and will last for just over six weeks. The deadline for comments is 17th September 2021.

Have your say

We are grateful for the time you have taken to consider our proposals. We’re keen to understand local views, so please let us know if you have any comments, suggestions or feedback on the proposals.

You can submit your comments by completing the online questions on this website, downloading a feedback form, emailing us, or speaking with us on the phone. Contact details are listed below.

Should you require a hard copy of the feedback form, let us know and we’ll post it to you. Similarly, if you’d like to discuss the project with someone directly, either call our freephone number to speak with a member of the team or email us and we’ll call you back.

  • The project website, www.parcsolartraffwll.co.uk, will contain relevant planning documents and plans and will be updated regularly through the remainder of the pre-application planning process.

    Next steps

    We are currently aiming to submit an application to the Planning Inspectorate Wales in late Summer 2021.

    Once we have submitted our application, the Planning Inspectorate Wales will check that all the required documents have been submitted and decide whether or not to ‘accept’ the application. A Planning Inspector will then be appointed, and the examination will start.

    The Inspectorate will arrange for the Local Planning Authority (in this case Isle of Anglesey County Council) to display a notice (or notices) on site. A case officer in the Inspectorate will email or write to all owners and occupiers of adjoining land, Community Councils and other statutory bodies, inviting them to submit ‘representations’. At this point, local communities will then have a further 5 weeks to submit comments (known as ‘representations’) to the Inspectorate directly.

    This engagement phase has finished
