Navitus Bay Invites Public to Meet Offshore Wind Park Project Team
- offshore energie
The three-hour drop-in sessions will be held in eight different locations across the region and will give local communities an opportunity to learn more about the development, which, if granted planning permission, could generate enough electricity to power up to 790,000 homes each year.
These informal events follow a series of public exhibitions in February and come as Navitus Bay prepares for the next round of community consultation in September.
Mike Unsworth, Project Director of Navitus Bay, said:
“Navitus Bay is committed to communicating honestly and openly with members of the public to ensure that they are given as much information as possible about the proposed wind park, which will deliver significant economic benefits to the local community.
“We have been carrying out comprehensive consultation with the community since 2010. As a result of the feedback we have gathered to date, we have scaled back the project and moved the northern boundary further away from the shore.
“We are still listening and will continue to act on the feedback we receive. We would therefore encourage as many people as possible to come to these sessions to hear more about our proposals and to make their views known.”
