Phase 3.5 Consultation

Phase 3.5 Consultation extension:

After listening to feedback from local authorities and residents, we have decided to extend the Phase 3.5 consultation period by a further two weeks, to the 12 November 2018. As a responsible developer, we go above and beyond statutory requirements, carrying out effective stakeholder engagement to ensure we obtain and consider as much feedback as possible.

During this phase of consultation, we have hosted four public meetings, posted consultation documents and feedback forms to 16,000 homes across the onshore search area and made documents available at a range of public buildings. We hope that through extending the consultation period as many people as possible will provide feedback on the proposals, which will be fully considered in the assessment process.

As part of the development of the East Anglia ONE North offshore windfarm, ScottishPower Renewables is undertaking a further phase of pre-application consultation from 29th September 2018 to 29th October 2018. This new phase of consultation provides us with the opportunity to engage with local communities on a number of recent project developments, including:

  • The opportunity to consider a new potential substation location between Sizewell and Leiston, as a possible alternative to the currently proposed substation site near Friston.  SPR and EDF Energy have been working together to explore the possibility of using land on the Sizewell B estate for the SPR development.  This land is currently being used as a site to translocate protected wildlife in preparation for the Sizewell C development.  EDF Energy has been working closely in recent years with Suffolk Wildlife Trust and Natural England to establish this agreed ecological mitigation area. 
  • Options to relocate the existing Sizewell C reptile mitigation land.
  • Proposed improvements to parts of the local road network.
  • Refinement of the proposed area required for National Grid Electrical Transmission (NGET) to connect their proposed substation to the existing Overhead Line.
  • Plans to run parallel consultation and stakeholder engagement, as well as parallel Preliminary Environmental Information (PEI) processes for both projects.
  • Options to allow appropriate access to the substation site.
  • Options to ensure appropriate connection to the surface water drainage network.
