THE PLANNING ACT 2008 AND THE INFRASTRUCTURE PLANNING (ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT) REGULATIONS 2017 

NOTICE OF A DECISION ON AN APPLICATION FOR AN ORDER GRANTING DEVELOPMENT CONSENT 


The Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (“the Secretary of State”) gives notice under regulation 31(2) of the Infrastructure Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2017 (“2017 Regulations”) that a determination has been made on an application by East Anglia ONE North Limited (“the Applicant”) for an Order granting development consent under the Planning Act 2008 (“the 2008 Act”) for development that constitutes “EIA development” as defined in the 2017 Regulations. 
The application is for the construction and operation of an offshore wind farm with a capacity of greater than 100 MW. The offshore elements would be located approximately 36 km from Lowestoft and 42 km from Southwold. The onshore elements include construction and operation of landfall connection works north of Thorpeness in Suffolk, underground cables running from landfall to a new onshore substation located at Grove Wood, Friston, Suffolk, together with a new National Grid substation and National Grid overhead line realignment works. The order granting development consent would also authorise the compulsory acquisition of land, and the temporary possession of land to facilitate development. 

The Secretary of State has determined, following consideration of the report of the Examining Authority who conducted an examination into the application and his own subsequent consultations, that development consent should be granted, and has decided therefore to make an Order under sections 114 ,115, 120, 140 and 149A of the 2008 Act in respect of the East Anglia ONE North offshore wind farm.

The statement of reasons also contains the information required by regulation 30(2) of the 2017 Regulations including information regarding the right to challenge the decision and the procedures for doing so.
