Clientearth, Regina (on The Application of) v Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and Another: CA 21 Jan 2021

This appeal raises questions on the interpretation of the Overarching National Policy Statement for Energy and the National Policy Statement for Fossil Fuel Electricity Generating Infrastructure, and their legal effect in the determination of an application for a development consent order to approve a nationally significant infrastructure project. The NSIP in question is the proposal to construct and operate two gas-fired generating units at the Drax Power Station, near Selby in North Yorkshire.
