The OMSSD project constitutes an Environmental Impact Assessment “EIA” development for the purposes of the Infrastructure Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2017. Oikos is, therefore, required to undertake an Environmental Impact Assessment and will be submitting an Environmental Statement as part of its application for a DCO.
A Preliminary Environmental Information Report (“PEIR”) has been prepared on a topic by topic basis which considers the likely impact of the OMSSD project during both construction and operation. The PEIR and related consultation documents will be available to view and download from Tuesday 6th April 2021 on the OMSSD consultation website at: www.oikos.co.uk/omssd/consultation. It is anticipated that the DCO application will submitted later this year.
