answer text <p>In taking the decision to grant development consent for the gas turbines at the Drax Power Station, my rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State considered the impacts of the proposed development against a range of receptors and all other relevant issues. The Secretary of State concluded that the potential benefits of the development outweighed any potential adverse impacts. Her conclusions are set out in the decision letter available on the Planning Inspectorate’s website at:</p><p><a href="https://infrastructure.planninginspectorate.gov.uk/projects/yorkshire-and-the-humber/drax-re-power/" target="_blank">https://infrastructure.planninginspectorate.gov.uk/projects/yorkshire-and-the-humber/drax-re-power/</a></p><p> </p><p>The Planning Inspectorate’s Report to the Secretary of State on the application for development consent for the gas-fired turbines at Drax Power Station states that the total figure for greenhouse gas emissions over the operational lifetime of the project would be 287.568m tonnes (assuming the project is built out in full and operates with 100% loading factor).</p><p> </p><p>The Planning Inspectorate’s Report concluded that there was no evidence that granting development consent for the development would in itself lead to a breach of her statutory duties under the Climate Change Act 2008 or any other legislation. Similarly, in concluding that development consent should be granted, the Secretary of State considered that there was no evidence that doing so would lead to a breach of the United Kingdom’s international obligations.</p><p> </p><p>The Planning Inspectorate’s Report on the application for development consent is also available on the Planning Inspectorate’s website.</p>
