The new 162 Megawatt CCGT plant will use natural gas to produce electricity and steam for use within the paper recycling process.

Due to the capacity of the CCGT plant it is a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) which requires a Development Consent Order from from the Secretary of State. 

DHA took the lead role in managing and submitting the application for a Development Consent Order which comprised extensive pre-application consultation with statutory and local bodies.

DHA then managed the progress of the application through the 3 month pre-examination and 6 month examination process, including responding to Inspector questions and taking part in public and issue specific hearings. The Development Consent Order was the 50th such order to be granted in the country.
