Community Consultations for Dogger Bank Creyke Beck (UK)
Forewind, development partner for the Dogger Bank Zone, potentially the world’s largest wind energy project, announces its first community consultation events to present proposals for its first development: Dogger Bank Creyke Beck.
Dogger Bank Creyke Beck is planned to connect into the national grid at an existing substation at Creyke Beck, near Cottingham in the East Riding of Yorkshire, and consultation events will be held at locations along or near the proposed onshore cable route.
