Sheringham Shoal Extension Offshore Wind Farm

02 Sep 2022: On the 2nd September 2022, Equinor has applied, via Development Consent Order (DCO) a submission, to the Planning Inspectorate for permission to build Sheringham Shoal Extension and the Dudgeon Extension Offshore Wind Farms, both of which are located off the North Norfolk coast. The document when released will have detailed description of the projects together with plans, environmental assessments and other supporting documents related to the offshore wind farms. Following public consultations with the local communities, Equinor wants to try to make as little disruptions as possible for local communities, and therefore with the planning documents has submitted provides for an integrated transmission system, as well as separate grid connections for each project, within the same overall onshore footprint. The Planning Inspectorate now has 28 days to decide whether the DCO application is sufficient to be accepted for examination. Upon such acceptance, a statutory consultation will be undertaken prior to examination which provides Sheringham Shoal Extension and Dudgeon Extension Project stakeholders, including members of Norfolk’s coastal and inland communities, with the opportunity to formally review and comment on Equinor’s plans in the accepted application.
