We undertook the first stage of consultation on the IAMP DCO application in late 2016/early 2017. Click here to view the consultation documents from this Stage 1 consultation

On 13 February 2017 we published an Interim Consultation Report.  The Report provides a summary of the Stage 1 DCO Consultation and an overview of the feedback we received.  It also outlines how the views expressed are helping shape the Project, including our on-going design work and environmental assessments.
