The application for the proposed West Burton C Power Station, a new gas-fired peaking plant power station, has been granted development consent by the UK Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

The new power station will be located within the wider West Burton Power station site, approximately 3.5km to the south of Gainsborough, UK, with a generating capacity of up to 299MW. EDF notes that due to current challenging market conditions, there are no immediate plans to build this power station at the moment.
