Concept for Public Participation

Approach to Public Consultation

To explain the approach to public consultations about the GridLink project, including to implement the recommendations from the preliminary consultation in France,

we have prepared a Concept for Public Participation setting out the planned approach to stakeholder engagement with the local communities, interest groups and the general public. 

Public Consultation related to Permit Applications in France

Following successful completion of the preliminary consultation, GridLink has started the next phase of public consultation in France. The next phase comprises stakeholder engagement related to the preparation of the environmental impact assessment and permit application files.

Public Consultation related to Permit Applications in the UK

Public consultations are a key part of our commitment to engaging positively with all stakeholders throughout the development, construction and operation of the GridLink project in the UK. We welcome the contributions from the public consultations, and intend to take all comments and recommendations into account in our planning, design and implementation of the GridLink project.

Since November 2017, public information has been available via the GridLink web-site. This has been complemented by meetings with key stakeholders, including Medway Council, statutory consultees such as Natural England and Historic England, neighbouring land-owners and fishermen associations.
