Scott Sutherland, Co-Project Director, Codling Wind Park, said: “Surveys and site investigation activities are important in assessing the suitability and feasibility of all offshore aspects of the project. This data will be used to inform the ongoing environmental assessments required as part of the consenting process and to progress the design of the project.
“We fully recognise the importance of appropriate and sensitive development of the project. All offshore survey activities will be carefully considered and planned to minimise any impact on fishers and other marine users. The approach of the project has always been – and remains – minimising disturbance to, and ensuring co-existence with, local fishers and other marine users. We will continue to consult and engage with local communities and a wide range of interested stakeholders, to ensure that everyone is informed and has a chance to share their views with us.”
The closing date for submissions is close of business (17:30) on 27th November 2022.
