EDF: Initial Proposals and options for Hinkley Point C Nuclear Development – S42 Planning Act 2008
(2009)
JNCC Consultation 0948
Submission by the Joint Nature Conservation Committee
Enclosed is JNCC's response to a consultation from EDF on the Hinkley Point C Nuclear Development, which does not fall under the remit of the company. Submitted on 15th December 2009.
 
 

Summary of key points

 
JNCC has responsibility for the provision of nature conservation advice in the offshore area. 'Offshore' is defined as beyond 12 nautical miles (nm) from the coastline to the extent of the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS). Within territorial limits (<12 nm) nature conservation advice is the responsibility of the relevant country agencies these being: Natural England (NE), Countryside Council for Wales (CCW), Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and the Council for Nature Conservation and the Countryside (CNCCNI).
 
This development proposal is not located within the offshore area and does not have any potential offshore nature conservation issues therefore JNCC does not have any comments to make on the consultation.
