Nationally Significant Infrastructure Projects
A number of nationally significant infrastructure projects are proposed for development either in Suffolk or off of the coast. These include:
Sizewell C Nuclear Power Station - more information on this project is available here.
East Anglia Offshore Wind Farm - the Development Consent Order (DCO) for Project ONE was granted by the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change in June 2014. Construction is now underway. More information on this process is available here.
Project THREE has also been granted a Development Consent Order by Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change. More information is available here.
Scottish Power Renewables (SPR) are preparing proposals East Anglia ONE NORTH and East Anglia TWO offshore windfarm projects. The proposed onshore elements of these schemes include cable landfall north of Thorpeness with a cable corridor running north (and then possibly west) to a substations site. They are currently consulting on two proposed sites for substations, a location just north of Friston and a location at Broom Covert between Leiston and Sizewell nuclear power station. This consultation, known as Consultation 3.5, runs from 29th September to 29th October 2018. We are currently reviewing the consultation documents and preparing a response, with our initial position set out here.
Galloper Offshore Wind Farm - a Development Consent Order has been granted for this project. More information is available here.
