Consultation description

This is a consultation on a proposed modification to the (deemed) marine licences (“the proposed condition”) of the following offshore windfarm projects:

  • Dudgeon
  • Greater Gabbard
  • Galloper
  • Hornsea Project Two
  • Creyke Beck A and B
  • Teesside A and B

The purpose of the proposed condition is to protect the Southern North Sea Site of Community Interest (SCI) from being adversely affected by windfarm development, either alone or in-combination with other plans and projects. This follows a consultation (1st November – 13th December 2018) on the draft Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA) undertaken by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) for the Southern North Sea SCI Review of Consents1.

In light of the consultation responses received and due to the need to consult specifically on a proposed modification to a (deemed) marine licence, the MMO and BEIS are consulting (a) the affected licence holders (b) the relevant statutory authorities and all other interested parties on the proposed condition. The proposed condition is provided in the attached Annex A and further information, including background and explanatory notes, is provided in Annex B. The parameters referred to in part (a) of the proposed condition are provided in Annex C.
