Detail

In the report ‘Future Offshore’ (DTI, 2002), it was proposed that an announcement of a second competition for site leases (second leasing round), for offshore wind farms, would be made in Spring, 2003, focusing on three Strategic Areas.

These were identified and defined borders that, in certain localities, cross the boundary of UK territorial waters. To assist decision-making on the design and terms of the competition the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) commissioned a Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) in line with the requirements of the ‘SEA’ Directive. The SEA has resulted in preparation of this Environmental Report on the proposals.
