ICOL was initially granted planning permission in principle by East Lothian Council in September 2014 for onshore transmission works between Prestonpans and Cockenzie. In recognition of feedback from community engagement events, ICOL is promoting a change in location for the onshore works and is taking forward a new planning application for this to be located on the site of the former Cockenzie Power Station. The purpose of the planning application is to seek permission to develop the onshore transmission works. The consultation event was held to ensure the community is informed and given the opportunity to contribute views which will be included as part of the planning application submitted to East Lothian Council. Once the final details of the onshore transmission works are known, ICOL will go through a further application process with East Lothian Council for detailed planning permission.
