The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) allows us to understand any potential impacts from the Project on communities or the onshore and offshore environment and to identify how these impacts could be avoided or reduced. The assessment will consider visual impact; restrictions to navigation; ecology, water quality, coastal processes and other environmental impacts. It will also consider traffic impact during the construction and operational phases.
We’ll share the initial findings from the EIA process during our public consultation. This will give you the opportunity to provide your view.
Consultation is a key element of the EIA process and we will be consulting throughout the process with key technical consultees including Natural Resources Wales, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency and the Joint Nature Conservation Committee.
