Dear Mr Kenyon


Notice of our decision

Name of the person applying:
Ms Julia Horne, The Mill House, Gara Bridge, Totnes

Application number: NPS/WR/001467

Licence number: SW/046/0005/001


You provided comments via email on 1st July 2010 and at a meeting on 29th September 2010 relating to the above application for a licence.  Having looked at the application and considered your comments, we have decided to grant a licence with appropriate conditions. These conditions will protect the environment and the interests of other water users.  Following the acceptance of the application, the applicant was required to carry out a fish impact assessment followed by an assessment of the informal weir. These requirements delayed the determination of this proposal.  Based on the recommendations included in both assessments, the licence was approved on 28 April 2011.  I apologise for the delay in notifying you.  have also attached a copy of the licence for reference.  Please note that currently the Agency does not require screening for the operation of the Archimedean screw turbine.


The person applying for the licence has the right to appeal against the conditions we have applied. We will give you notice of any appeal and you will have an opportunity to make further comments in writing or to attend any hearing or inquiry that may be held.


The Devon Area Environment Planning team has entered a copy of our decision on the public register.


Please let me know if you need more information.
