On 16 August 2016, the Secretary of State granted a development consent order (DCO) for Hornsea two offshore wind farm. The pre-application, examination and DCO documents can be found on the planning inspectorate’s website.
The DCO authorises the construction and operation of up to two offshore generating stations consisting of a combined total of up to 300 wind turbine generators with a combined maximum capacity of 1800MW, situated approximately 80km off the East Yorkshire coast.
On 18 July 2017, the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) received a request from DONG Energy to vary the deemed marine licences (DMLs) contained within Schedules 9 and 11 of the Hornsea two offshore wind farm order 2016. The MMO’s decision was to vary the DMLs, effective from 26 September 2017. Details of this variation can be viewed in the notice of variation.
