Major Energy Developments

There are currently a number of private sector developers proposing to develop low carbon renewable major energy projects on Anglesey.

The Isle of Anglesey County Council see the development of these major projects as key in transforming the Island’s economy for the future and providing a sustainable long-term high quality of life for Anglesey’s residents.

The IACC are investing a considerable amount of resources to ensure that the Island can fully capitalise on this potential inward investment.

Currently, the two most prominent projects being proposed are the Nuclear New Build at Wylfa and National Grid North Wales Grid Connection, which are referred to as Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects (NSIPs).

NSIP projects, due to their significance require separate approval procedure to any other project. These projects require that the relevant developer i.e. Horizon Nuclear Power submit their application to the Planning Inspectorate (PINS), who will refer their recommendation for approval/ rejection to the Secretary of State for Energy & Climate Change who will decide whether consent should be given; this is referred to as a Development Consent Order.

As a statutory consultee, the IACC will have considerable input in assessing, challenging and commenting on these proposals to ensure the best possible outcome for the people of Anglesey.

While the principal NSIP project will require approval via the DCO process. In order for approval to be granted, developers must also demonstrate that they have considered and consulted on any other development associated with the main development(s) required to ensure the success of the project. These are termed ‘associated developments’ (road infrastructure etc.)

Under Welsh Planning Law these are not included in the Development Consent Order but as separate Town and Country Planning Act applications which will be submitted, by the developer to the Isle of Anglesey County Council for approval.
