A - Z Projects

Orion provided the historic environment input to a proposed gas powered electricity peaking plant and its associated gas and electricity connections. As the plant will generate 299MW of electricity, this was a Development Consent Order (DCO) application. The project involved the assessment of the potential physical impacts on archaeological remains and the impact on the setting of designated heritage assets within 5km radius of the scheme. Consultations have been undertaken with both Historic England and the local authority’s heritage advisors. The DCO application was submitted to PINS in October 2017 and consultations with the statutory bodies is on-going ahead of the hearing in 2018.
