31st May to 28th June 2023

North Channel Wind held a non-statutory public consultation for North Channel Wind 1 and 2 from 31st May to 28th June 2023, to introduce the projects to the general public, answer questions and gather early feedback that could feed into the scoping process. This included public exhibitions in Carnlough, Islandmagee and Bangor, and an online exhibition available through our Virtual Consultation Room.

Although this consultation has now closed, all the information remains available to view. Note: The information contained in the virtual consultation room and exhibition boards was last updated in May/June 2023.

The public consultation featured the Offshore Scoping Report, which described the key offshore elements of the proposed projects, the potential effects of the projects on the surrounding environment, and the methods that will be used to gather and assess data to inform the subsequent Environmental Impact Assessment.

We are grateful to everyone who took the time to get in touch. All feedback has been carefully considered by the project team. We have published a Public Consultation Report summarising the consultation process and the responses received.



Our team is happy is to help with any questions. Please email us, or to request a call back please phone +44 (0)28 9051 1382
