New date for Atlantic Array application



RWE npower renewables, the company developing the Atlantic Array offshore wind farm in the Bristol Channel has today announced a revised date for submitting their application to the Planning Inspectorate.

To ensure they can give full consideration to all the feedback generated by their consultation on the proposed wind farm, the company has decided to make their submission in spring 2013 as opposed to the original date of December 2012.

Craig Harwood, Atlantic Array Development Manager said: “The latest consultation period closed on August 31st this year, but we received a number of responses from statutory bodies, interested parties and the public after this date.“

“In order to give reasonable consideration to all the responses we have received, both during the consultation period in the summer and afterwards, we’ve decided to submit the planning application during the spring of 2013. This will mean we can consider all of the feedback thoroughly before submitting our application.”

“We would like to thank everyone who has taken the time to join in with our consultation on the Atlantic Array Offshore Wind Farm.”
