Most of us on this board have invested precious resources of varying amounts and for many different reasons. Just how do any of you feel when you see that now, after 5 years of service cuts and wage cuts that have resulted in apparently a good economy, and yet the faceless ones in Brussels have now decreed that we should pay another £1.75 Billion because our economy is good. But worse than that, germany and France will receive berates of £801 million and £640 million? We must be craze to accept this. Struggling to improve our quality of life by investing, only to find that it is being handed out to other countries…I want out of Europe right now. Nurse I think I will have a large glass please and pray that tonight the rest of our UK will finally wake up and act. Next week IMO we will see a very similar calm to this one with movement only towards the port 30 as we close to the approval date..ATB
Yes indeed, self preservation for them being paramount I suspect. But do they understand how to continue with that?
As looking at the pressure for this to happen from the people of the area (97% support), the opinions of surrounding local authorities, local and national business, MPs and quietly, government it would be a very brave and distinctly blinkered group of NP officers:
Yes GK, I agree. Totally different scenarios. There, a SoS decision pursuant to a DCO application for site of an existing industrial facility. Here, a planning application to be decided by a self-interested NP authority. My money is staying in my pocket.
In the South Hook CHP scheme being a Major Development being allowed within a NP,there are similarities and there, there is a small amount of precedent YP could call on. But there the similarities end, AFAICT.
The CHP proposed plant is adjacent to the existing much larger Exxonmobil LNG plant and was passed by PINS/SoS as national Infrastructure:
YP have to get permission for a mine at an isolated greenfield site with no existing industrial neighbourhood footprint in this NP. That is always a bigger 'ask' than proposing the extension of existing 'sprawl' ie the Wilton MHF. However they have a very good scheme, will they succeed? We'll see.
