Final Consultation for Dogger Bank Starts Next Month (UK)
The final phase of pre-application consultation for Forewind’s second stage of offshore wind energy development, Dogger Bank Teesside A & B, will run for seven weeks from Monday, 4 November.
The consultation, which starts with the publication of documents, plans and maps about the proposed development, will continue until Friday, 20 December and will include three public events to be held in venues near the proposed landfall and cable route, at Redcar and Lazenby.
This consultation is the result of almost four years of work including onshore and offshore environmental and engineering surveys, consultation and technical assessments.
Project Manager Chris Nunn said it is the main opportunity for stakeholders, including members of the public, to view and comment on the proposals before the consent application is submitted.
“The aim of this consultation is to gather views and feedback on the proposals, and give those with an interest in the project another opportunity to influence the way Dogger Bank Teesside A & B is developed,” he said.
