About this projectThe application is for gas pipeline approximately 27km in length, buried for its entire length, with an above ground installation at the start point. The proposed pipeline will start near Yoxall in Staffordshire, where a connection will be made into the national transmission system, and the pipeline will terminate at a block valve within the site of the new Willington C Power Station in Derbyshire.
The construction of the pipeline will be carried out within a temporary construction corridor, nominally 30m in width, but widening where additional working area is required. Three temporary construction compounds are required. One permanent access is required at the above ground installation.

What happens next
The preliminary meeting will be held on Friday 10 January 2014. Invitations to this meeting have been sent to interested parties.
The preliminary meeting is held in public and concerns procedural matters only. It is not essential to attend the preliminary meeting; interested parties will be sent details of how to take further part in the examination in any event.
The procedural decision, setting the timetable for the examination including deadlines for receipt of detailed written representations and for comments on others’ representations, will be made after the preliminary meeting and will be published on the project page. It will also be available on request from Willington@infrastructure.gsi.gov.uk and our helpline: 0303 444 5000.
If you are an interested party, you will receive notifications about the examination and you will also be notified about the final decision.
If you have a legal interest in land affected by a nationally significant infrastructure project and have not already registered to become an interested party, then you can make a request to the Examining Authority to become an interested party under s102A of the Planning Act 2008 (as amended).
