Second consultation into wind farm plan launched

THERE will be a second consultation into plans for a wind farm off the coast of Worthing.

A 12-week community consultation ended on May 6, but due to the level of interest in the Rampion Offshore Wind Farm proposal, contractor E.ON will launch another eight-week consultation tomorrow (Wednesday, June 13).

It will centre around the same proposals for the wind farm, but will contain more detailed environmental information about the project. A statutory consultation period will also run simultaneously with the public consultation, involving statutory bodies, local authorities, county councils and landowners.

More on this in Thursday’s Worthing Herald.
