The consultation process

Order Limits Change Report

At the start of February 2019, we began an additional targeted consultation with relevant statutory consultees for a very specific minor amendment to the project’s offshore order limits. The proposed change would slightly extend the project’s order limits to enable project interconnection links directly from Norfolk Boreas to Norfolk Vanguard (East).

The relevant information regarding this proposed change is contained within the Order Limits Change Report and the letter to targeted consultees.

 Norfolk Boreas Statutory Consultation

From November 7th to 9th December 2018, we carried out statutory consultation on the Norfolk Boreas Offshore Wind Farm proposals. 

This period of consultation built upon extensive work that has already taken place for both the Norfolk Boreas and Norfolk Vanguard projects, and reflected the substantial refinement that we have already made to our proposals. In particular, local people and stakeholders were able to review our Preliminary Environmental Information Report (PEIR) for the project, which included information about the environmental assessments and proposed mitigation.

In order to encourage and enable as many local people as possible to participate we prepared a variety of consultation materials, ranging from the Consultation Summary Document, to the interactive 3D model available at the consultation events.

We have now published our latest edition of Hearing Your Views IV (Interim Consultation Report) which provides a summary of how we consulted, the high-level statistics from the consultation, the feedback received and a summary of the key issues raised.

The depth and breadth of feedback from those across the onshore project area and beyond, is greatly appreciated. It provides us with useful pointers to consider as we finalise our proposals, ahead of submitting our Development Consent Order (DCO) application to the Planning Inspectorate in summer 2019.
