Environmental Surveys

As part of the planning consent process we have to carry out a number of environmental surveys before construction started, during construction and after construction of the wind farm. The various ecological measures have been put together into a single environmental monitoring plan, following advice from Natural England and CEFAS.

The plans provide clarity on the detail of the ecological conditions and the requirements to be carried out before, during and after construction of the onshore substation, the export cable route up to the sea defences of the Swale Estuary, and the whole of the offshore development of 175 turbines, two substations and associated cabling.
