Notification of Statement of Community Consultation

ScottishPower Renewables (SPR) is developing two offshore windfarm projects known as East Anglia TWO and East Anglia ONE North.

East Anglia TWO covers approximately 255km2 and will be around 30km from the East Anglia coast at its closest point. East Anglia ONE North covers approximately 208km2 and sits 36km from the East Anglia coast at its closest point.

SPR has published two Statements of Community Consultation (SoCC) in accordance with Section 47 of the Planning Act 2008, one for each offshore windfarm project.

It is intended to submit an application for consent to the Planning Inspectorate for East Anglia TWO in 2019. The application for East Anglia ONE North is then intended to follow in 2020.

Each SoCC sets out how SPR intends to consult with local communities within the vicinity of the projects.

The company welcomes your views on the projects, and invites you to review these documents, and respond by midnight on 3rd April 2018.

SPR has dedicated email addresses: eastangliaonenorth@scottishpower.com and eastangliatwo@scottishpower.com

All consultation responses received by the projects will be recorded and details may be included within the consultation report, to be submitted alongside the application for consent. SPR will not share individuals’ data, only the area they are from.

To launch the consultation, SPR is holding six drop-in information events, where members of the project team, together with specialist consultants, will be available to answer questions on East Anglia Two and East Anglia ONE North. These are taking place as shown below. No appointment is necessary.
