In a somewhat derisory move EDF/CGN have moved the closing date for the Stage One Consultation to 1st July this year. This appears to be a token gesture to appease the reasonable requests to abandon the current plan during the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic and re-start it once it would be safe to stage public events again. The current ‘offer’ is to interact online, or via telephone, and BRB have launched a new virtual exhibition which replicates the boards one could view if you made it to the handful of events that actually took place. This simply is not sufficient to be considered as true engagement as many communities have yet to be fully consulted. BANNG encourages our supporters to keep pressing this point home as we continue to do so. Meanwhile thanks to all those who responded to the recent planning application BRB submitted to Maldon District Council regarding further investigative work to BRB wish to carry out on the site. We will publish a selection of your submissions shortly.
