The consultation period for the proposals for the Atlantic Array Offshore Wind Farm has now ended.
All the feedback forms e mails and letters from the public and statutory consultees (eg councils, conservation bodies etc), will be considered in the preparation of our final application which will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate in Spring 2013.
Many thanks to everyone who completed feedback forms or gave us their views.
Our second phase of consultation involved statutory bodies and groups such as local authorities.
It also included a second series of 13 exhibitions held in venues throughout north Devon and south Wales.
In total 961 people attended these exhibitions and 165 feedback forms were completed.
We have also received e mails and comments through the post which are now being collated and will feed into the final application.
Our first period of formal public consultation ran from the 10th September 2011 to the 10th November 2011. During this time we sought feedback on the Atlantic Array Offshore Wind Farm proposal based on Preliminary Environmental information (PEI) we had gathered at the proposed site...
The PEI is a set of documents which will include plans and maps to show the nature and location of the proposed offshore wind farm, its onshore infrastructure and substation. The PEI also includes information from the environmental studies we have been carrying out.
We held public exhibition events along the North Devon and South Wales coasts. Nearly 2000 members of the public attended the events where they could meet with the project team, view information on the project and see visualisations of what the wind farm could look like.
