East Anglia Two and One North Offshore Wind Farm’s Public Consultation Exercise: an additional phase of consultation has been added.
The Aldeburgh Society and others strongly objected to the proposal to site the substation to support these windfarms inland away from the coast and to the choice of Zone 7 (Friston) in particular. It seems that the campaign to oppose the siting of the substation at Friston has had some effect as Scottish Power have announced that they are to run an additional Phase of Consultation ‘Phase 3.5’. SPR have announced inclusion of EDF land to the west of the Sizewell Power station, as an alternative location for onshore development of substations/grid connections. Phase 3.5 Consultation will run from the 29th September to 29th October. SPR have released an amended SoCC (Statement of Community Consultation) to reflect the ‘alternative option’ land.A series of public meetings will take place in October to provide more details and opportunity for community/stakeholder engagement.
