Notice is hereby given that Telford Offshore Windfarm Limited, registered under company
registration 07386810, Stevenson Offshore Windfarm Limited, registered under company
registration 07386838, and MacColl Offshore Windfarm Limited, registered under company
registration 07386891, have applied to the Scottish Ministers to vary the consents granted

offshore generating stations known as the Telford Offshore Wind Farm, the Stevenson
Offshore Wind Farm and the MacColl Offshore Wind Farm offshore from the Highland and
The applications, made under section 36C of the Electricity Act 1989, seek to make the
following variations: variations to permit the use of higher rated wind turbines (up to 10 MW)
for each of the Telford, Stevenson and MacColl Offshore Wind Farms with no amendment to
the turbine physical parameters and, a variation of the maximum capacity from 372 MW to
500 MW for the MacColl Offshore Wind Farm. The maximum total installed capacity for the
Telford, Stevenson and MacColl Offshore Wind Farms will not exceed the already consented
The variation application and supporting information are available for inspection, free of
charge, during normal office hours at:
Inverness Library, Ferraline Park, Inverness IV1 1NH
They can also be viewed online at http://www.morayoffshore.com/moray-east/documentlibrary/.
Copies of the variation application and supporting information may also be obtained
from Craig Milroy, email@example.com, tel: 0131 556 7602.
Any representations should be made in writing by email to:
firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to The Scottish Government, Marine Scotland
Licensing Operations Team, Marine Laboratory, 375 Victoria Road, Aberdeen, AB11 9DB,
identifying the proposal and specifying grounds for objection or support, not later than 26th
January 2018, although the Scottish Ministers may consider representations received after
this date. Representations should be dated and should clearly state the name (in block
capitals) and the full return email or postal address of those making representation.
Subsequent submission by the companies detailed above of additional information to the
Scottish Ministers will be publicised in a similar manner to the current variation application.
Representations relative to additional information should be made on the same basis as
Where the Scottish Ministers decide to exercise their discretion to do so the Scottish Ministers
shall cause a Public Local Inquiry (PLI) to be held.
Following receipt of all views and representations, the Scottish Ministers will determine the
application for consent in one of two ways:
• Consent to the variation application, with or without conditions attached; or
• Reject the variation application.
If consent is granted for the variation application, the Scottish Ministers will consider exercising
their discretion to vary the Marine Licences granted in respect of the wind farms on the 3rd
September 2014 (licence numbers 04629/13/0, 04627/13/0 and 04628/13/0). The variations
would revise the descriptions in Paragraph 2.2 of the respective Marine Licences to reflect the
changes proposed by the variation application. The Scottish Ministers would consider the
variation of the Marines Licences in terms of section 72 (3) (d) of the Marine and Coastal
Access Act 2009 and section 30(3)(d) of the Marine (Scotland) Act 2010 to ensure that the
marine licence and consent granted under section 36 of the Electricity Act 1989 (as amended)
are consistent. Any representations in relation to the potential marine licence variation should
be submitted to the Scottish Government’s Marine Scotland Licensing Operations Team (“MSLOT”)
in the same manner as described as above relative to representations in respect of the
variation application and within the same timeframe.
Fair Processing Notice
MS-LOT processes applications under the Marine (Scotland) Act 2010, the Marine and
Coastal Access Act 2009 and The Electricity Act 1989 (as amended). During the consultation
process written representations can be sent to the Scottish Ministers.
Should the Scottish Ministers call a Public Local Inquiry (PLI) copies of representations will be
sent to the Directorate of Planning and Environmental Appeals for the Reporter to consider
during the inquiry. These representations will be posted on their website but will not publish
your personal data (e.g. your name and address) as this is removed beforehand in compliance
with the Data Protection Act 1998.
You can choose to mark your representation as confidential, in which case it will only be
considered by the Scottish Ministers and will not be shared with the planning authority, the
applicant, the Reporter (should a PLI be called) or any other third party.
If you have any queries or concerns about how your personal data will be handled, contact
MS-LOT by email at: email@example.com or by post to The Scottish Government,
Marine Scotland Licensing Operations Team, Marine Laboratory, 375 Victoria Road,
Aberdeen, AB11 9DB.
