Public Consultation related to Permit Applications in France

Public Consultation on 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.  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.

After the preliminary consultation was completed in March 2018, GridLink carried out a range of land and seabed surveys, engineering studies and regulatory procedures.  During this interim period, we carried out meetings with key interest groups to inform them of progress and the updated schedule for implementing the lessons learned for public consultation.

In September 2019, we started the preparation of the Environmental Impact Assessment and permit applications in France. Therefore, the full public consultation programme has also started at this time in accordance with the results of the preliminary consultation.
