This is where we will keep you updated with our planning and consenting related information.

We are currently undertaking an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) to understand the potential effects of the proposed Project on the environment and local communities and to identify ways in which any impacts could be avoided or mitigated.

The findings of our EIA will be presented in a document known as an Environmental Statement which will be submitted as part of our applications for consent.

To build and operate Llŷr 1 and 2, we will need to apply for the following consents:

  • Section 36 consent under the Electricity Act 1989: This would allow us to build and operate an offshore generating station (the wind farm) and would also include deemed planning permission for the onshore works. This means that consent for our onshore works would be considered as part of the section 36 application. Planning and Environment Decisions Wales (PEDW) administering on behalf of the Welsh Ministers are responsible for determining this type of application.
  • Marine Licence under Part 4 of the Marine and Coastal Access Act: This would allow us to carry out certain activities in the marine environment, such a works on the seabed and the establishment of moorings. Natural Resources Wales administer Marine Licence applications on behalf of the Welsh Government.
