Port of Tilbury Notice

Published: 30 November 2017

SECTION 56, PLANNING ACT 2008 PORT OF TILBURY LONDON LIMITED

PROPOSED PORT TERMINAL AT FORMER TILBURY POWER STATION - ‘TILBURY2’ PLANNING INSPECTORATE REFERENCE: TR030003

NOTICE OF ACCEPTANCE OF APPLICATION FOR A DEVELOPMENT CONSENT ORDER BY THE SECRETARY OF STATE

Notice is hereby given that on 21 November 2017, the Secretary of State accepted an application by Port of Tilbury London Limited (“PoTLL”) of Leslie Ford House, Tilbury Freeport, Tilbury, Essex, RM18 7EH, for a development consent order (“DCO”) under the Planning Act 2008 (“the Application”). The Application was submitted to the Planning Inspectorate (“PINS”), on behalf of the Secretary of State on 31 October 2017 and was given the reference number TR030003.

Summary of the Project

The proposed DCO would authorise the construction, operation and maintenance of a new port terminal and associated facilities (known as “Tilbury2”) on land that previously formed the western part of the Tilbury Power Station site in Tilbury, Essex, with an “infrastructure corridor” (to incorporate road and rail access arrangements) to the west of the site (“the Project”). The Project includes the following main elements:

  • a new Roll-on/Roll-off (“RoRo”) terminal;
  • a new facility for importing and processing bulk construction materials;
  • improvement of and extensions to the existing jetty in the river Thames;
  • dredging of berth pockets and immediate approaches in the river Thames;
  • external storage areas;
  • a new warehouse;
  • a new link road;
  • a new rail spur and sidings to provide rail access to the site; and
  • improvements to the ‘Asda roundabout’ to the west of the site.

Environmental   Impact Assessment

Due to its nature and size the Project is classified as “EIA development” for the purposes of the Infrastructure Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2009 (which apply to the Application). The Application is, therefore, accompanied by an Environmental Statement setting out the likely significant effects of the Project.

Copies of Application documents

A copy of the Application and its accompanying documents, plans and maps (including the draft DCO and the Environmental Statement) are available for inspection free of charge from 28 November 2017 until 8 January 2018 at the locations and times set out below (although please note the Christmas and New Year period may affect these times):
