The consultation process

Statutory Consultation this Autumn - Get involved

Norfolk Boreas Statutory Consultation

From November 7th until 23:59 on 9th December 2018, we will be carrying out a statutory consultation on our Norfolk Boreas proposal. The information gathered during the statutory consultation will help Vattenfall complete the project’s final design and any necessary mitigation ahead of a formal application in summer 2019 for a Development Consent Order (DCO) from the Secretary of State for Energy.


The consultation materials consist of:

A Consultation Summary Document – to provide a summary of our proposals;

The Preliminary Environmental Information Report (PEIR) – which sets out our preliminary assessment of potential environmental impacts of the Project and our proposed mitigation measures to reduce impacts identified as significant;

A Non-Technical Summary (NTS) of the PEIR;

• A feedback form for you to provide us with your views - print version and online version

Location plans of Norfolk Boreas (see the PEIR documents page);


We want to make sure information is accessible locally. All consultation materials will be available to view at the local libraries listed below from 31st October until 9th December 2018.

Any responses to or other representations in respect of the Project can be made in writing1:

1. Addressed to: FREEPOST NORFOLK BOREAS (no stamp required)
2. By email to:
3. Through completion of a consultation feedback form available at
