PROJECT UPDATE: SWANSEA BAY TIDAL LAGOON
29th June 2020
Tidal Power Plc has today begun material operations on the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon project.
Material operations on the Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon project comprise demolition of some of the existing structures on that site, and other site-clearing works. The beginning of these further works, and the prior ground investigations, each qualify as a material operation under section 155(1) of the Planning Act 2008 resulting to trigger the deeming provision of that section so as to lawfully begin the development authorised by the Development Consent Order prior to the expiration of the period to 30 June 2020.
Today’s operations secure in perpetuity the planning permission for Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon.
Further material operations will be carried out when necessary approvals are obtained
Further project updates will be issued in due course.
