30 Nov 2021: North Falls Project Update 30/11/21 - Project is engaging in the OTNR Pathfinder programme for coordinated offshore grids; Aligning with other projects early in the 2020’s would create significant challenges and has the potential to delay overall delivery for 2030. - A second year of offshore aerial bird surveys had been concluded, the findings of which were being discussed with Natural England (NE) and other stakeholders - Marine geo-physical surveys had been executed and completed during Q3 2021 - Nearby Thanet Extension was refused consent. Therefore this project is engaging with Trinity House and the Marine Coastguard Agency on data collection to support its navigational risk assessment. - The project is reviewing its Rochdale envelope, and undertaking a high level onshore constraints mapping exercise for the Tendring Peninsula area. - Derogations may be required (including compensation) for lesser black backed gull of the Alde-Ore Estuary Special Protection Area (SPA) and Flamborough and Filey Coast SPA. The project first aims to mitigate impacts to avoid adverse effects on integrity. Natural England considers effects on integrity to red-throated diver of the Outer Thames Estuary SPA could not be excluded. The project must submit a 'draft without prejudice' derogation case where there is any disagreement with the statutory nature conservation body over the potential for adverse effects on integrity - Q1/ Q2 2022 would include consultation on the onshore site selection - The project is targeting the Contracts for Difference auction in 2025 - It anticipated the PEIR will be completed by the end of Q1 2023 and that a shadow derogation case (including potential compensation measures) will be developed in parallel;
