Recent Decisions on Applications

The table below covers decisions on: energy applications under the Planning Act 2008; generating station applications under section 36 of the Electricity Act and those under Transport and Works Act (TWA) Order (for offshore wind farms in English waters only). NB: The table does not include TWA orders for offshore wind farms in Welsh waters as these fall to be determined by the National Assembly for Wales; and decisions on overhead line applications from May 2013 under section 37 of the Electricity Act following a public inquiry.
