The public consultation on the Offshore Scoping Report for North Channel Wind 1 and 2 is now closed. Thank you to everyone who took the time to get in touch. We are carefully considering all responses and will shortly publish a Consultation Report summarising the results. Although the consultation period has now closed, we welcome your views at any stage, so the Virtual Consultation Room and the Feedback Form will remain open for anyone wishing to find out more and provide feedback.
The Offshore Scoping Report describes the key elements of the proposed projects, the potential effects of the projects on the surrounding offshore environment, and the methods that will be used to gather and assess data to inform the subsequent Environmental Impact Assessment for the projects. Details of the proposed environmental approach to the onshore elements of the projects are due to be released later this year.
The public consultation aimed to gather the views of local communities and other stakeholders at an early stage, to help identify all the factors that need to be considered as the projects develop. The consultation provided the opportunity for people to learn more about the proposals and give their feedback.
The public consultation ran from 31st May to 28th June 2023, and included public exhibitions in Carnlough, Islandmagee and Bangor. A further phase of pre-application consultation is planned during the Environmental Impact Assessment.
