Project Timeline


UPDATE: We have now submitted our application for a Development Consent Order to the Planning Inspectorate to construct the proposed Riverside Energy Park. Thank you to everyone who provided responses to us during consultations. These have been taken into account in our application.

The Inspectorate has 28 days from Friday 16th November to decide whether to accept the application. If the application is accepted, the application documents will be made available by the Planning Inspectorate on their website. If you’d like to be kept informed on the application process, you can register to receive email updates on the Riverside Energy Park page of the Planning Inspectorate’s website here.

If the Secretary of State grants development consent for Riverside Energy Park, we expect to start construction in 2021 so that the proposed Energy Park can be generating electricity and heat for London’s homes and treating more of London’s waste by 2024.
