Scottish Power Renewables has brought forward the application date for East Anglia ONE North and deferred the application date for East Anglia TWO.
This means that the consultation for both projects can be run concurrently, providing more clarity on the two projects and reducing the consultation burden for stakeholders and communities. It also means there will be greater clarity on cumulative impact and interactions between the projects. This approach allows us to engage in a longer period of pre-application consultation, which was requested in previous feedback contributions.
We plan to run combined consultation, stakeholder engagement and a parallel Preliminary Environmental Information Report (PEIR) consultation process for East Anglia ONE North and East Anglia TWO.
Whilst we are consulting on both East Anglia ONE North and East Anglia TWO in parallel, we are also exploring the possibility of applying for consent for East Anglia ONE North and East Anglia TWO at the same time and we will advise on an application date in due course.
