This was a statutory stage of consultation in accordance with the Planning Act 2008. During this time, we are consulting on our developed proposals for the Project and the initial findings of our Environmental Impact Assessment.
Stage 2 is likely to be the last time the Project consults before submitting an application for a Development Consent Order later this year. As such, it is an important opportunity to have your say before we finalise our application.
As per the Infrastructure Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2017, the Project is an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) development.
Our Preliminary Environmental Information Report (PEIR) is the first main output of the EIA process and the largest document in this consultation.
The PEIR sets out the current environmental baseline, and based on our initial assessments, the Project’s potential benefits and impacts, and our proposals to mitigate those impacts. The PEIR is a key part of the consultation.
The documents that make up the statutory consultation are as below.

North Falls Offshore Wind Farm is the proposed extension to the operational Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm.
Five Estuaries and North Falls are both in the development stage and we are working closely with the North Falls Offshore Wind Farm project. The primary goal of this coordination is to reduce the potential impact of building the onshore connection to the national electricity transmission network for the two projects.
