UK: Dogger Bank Consultation Events Start on Friday
The public consultation events being held as part of Forewind’s consultation on the proposed 2.4GW Dogger Bank Teesside A & B development will start this Friday (November 22).
The project will comprise two up to 1.2GW offshore wind farms which will connect via underground cables into the national grid at the existing Lackenby substation, near Eston in Redcar and Cleveland.
The three public events are part of the development’s final phase of pre-application consultation, which started on Monday 4 November and runs until Friday 20 December.
In total the development could have 400 turbines with the closest being 165 kilometres (102 miles) from shore, as well as two new onshore converter stations to be located in the south-western corner of the Wilton Complex, Teesside.
The events will enable stakeholders, in particular the community living or working near the proposed onshore cable route and converter stations, to learn all about the project and submit their comments. Forewind staff will be on hand to answer questions and discuss the proposals. The events are on as follows:
|The Hub, 28-29 Esplanade, Redcar, TS10 3AE||Friday 22 November||2.00pm – 7.30pm|
|Lazenby Village Hall, High Street, Lazenby, TS6 8DU||Saturday 23 November||10:30am – 4.30pm|
|Zetland Park Methodist Church, The Crescent, Redcar, TS10 3AU||Monday 25 November||11:00am – 6.00pm|
This consultation is the culmination of more than three years of work including onshore and offshore surveys, consultation and technical assessments.
