The Scottish Government Planning and Environmental Appeals Division (DPEA) is to hold a Public Inquiry into our consent applications for the Kendoon to Tongland 132kV Reinforcement (KTR) Project, following an objection made in April 2021 by Dumfries and Galloway Council.
The DPEA has now written to all interested parties – those who made representations to the Scottish Government Energy Consents Unit following our applications – asking if they wish to give evidence to the Inquiry.
The DPEA sent the letters on 06 April 2022, and recipients have 14 days to respond. The DPEA is asking only if people intend to take part in the Inquiry. It is not accepting new representations.
The Scottish Government has appointed a Reporter to lead the Inquiry, who will be reviewing all evidence previously submitted before holding a pre-examination hearing in June 2022.
The Public Inquiry (PI) is expected to take place in mid-October to November 2022, after which the Reporter will make a recommendation to the Scottish Ministers.
You can find further information on the process on the DPEA website at www.dpea.scotland.gov.uk under application reference TRL-170-1.
