A - Z Projects

Orion undertook all the heritage assessment work for the DCO application for a prodposed combined energy plant comprising of an energy recovery facility from non-recyclable waste, battery storage, anaerobic digestion plant, solar panels and a combined heat & power plant. 

Our work comprised a comprehensive heritage desk based assessment for a large study area that encomapssed both the site and its associated long electricity cable routes, followed by the the production of the heritate PEIR chapter and  the final full ES.  Through extensive consultations with Historic England, London Borough of Bexley and Kent County Council, all heritage issues were resolved ahead of the submission of the DCO application.  Following submission of the application, through further extensive negotiations with the statutory bodies, Orion produced and agreed a Statement of Common Ground for heritage with Historic England and Kent County Council.

The DCO hearing is on-going.
