We advise that people contact Third Energy if there is anything they would like clarification on.

We hope to soon include a synopsis of the main points of the planning application as the full document contains thousands of pages.

Here is an article written by John Dewar the Operations Director at Third Energy in the Yorkshire Post Newspaper explaining about their plans.
