Proposed Bradwell Nuclear Power Station

Planning Permission - Development Consent Order (DCO)

The final determination of whether a new nuclear power station is allowed at Bradwell-on-Sea, will be made by the Secretary of State through the Development Consent Order (DCO), and not by Maldon District Council or Essex County Council. However, both organisations will be a consultee as part of the DCO process in the same way that residents and statutory partners are.
