Knottingley Power is committed to minimising the environmental impact of the project and protecting the natural environment. We will work closely with government agencies, environmental organisations and local communities to ensure our plans have the lowest possible impact on the environment.
As part of the Development Consent Order application we undertook a comprehensive Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of the power plant and associated infrastructure which considered the possible impacts that the project may have on the environment including:
- Landscape and Visual
- Transport and Access
- Air Quality
- Social and Economic
- Noise and Vibration
- Ecology and Nature Conservation
- Water and Clean Land
- Climate Change
