Windfarm

ScottishPower Renewables (SPR) is currently building an offshore windfarm off the Suffolk coast, with 102 turbines. They have already received development consent for a second windfarm nearby, which will add a further 172 turbines. As a guide to the physical scale of these projects, the 172 turbines in that second development alone will cover an area of 305 square kilometres (or 118 square miles).

SPR are seeking to develop a further two windfarm projects off our coast, covering a further 466 square kilometres between them (or 180 square miles), and to this end have arranged four Public Information Day events, two in Waveney and two in Suffolk Coastal, prior to formal consultation.

If you have questions, or wish to make your views known, you are invited to attend these sessions and talk to members of SPR's project team. The Suffolk Coastal events are as follows:
