Hornsea Project Four Offshore Wind Farm

13 Jul 2023: Update 13th July 2023: Hornsea Project Four has had it's application granted for development consent by the Secretary of State for Energy Security and Net Zero Update February 2023: Hornsea Four's consent application decision has been delayed due to further information being required from Orsted on wildlife compensation, seabird protection and the likely impacts on the local kittiwake, razorbill and gannet populations. The decision previously had to be made by 22 February 2023. The new deadline to decide the application is 12 July 2023. Update: Given examination closed on 22nd August, a decision could be made by the end of January 2023. Given project submitted DCO application in end-September 2021 then a decision could be possible during Q1 2023. (1 month acceptance, 3 months pre-examination, six months examination, 3 months recommendation, 3 months decision). For complex projects, which are becoming increasingly common in the Southern North Sea, expect additional delays.
