Deadline for decisions on three offshore wind farms extended

Business Secretary, Andrea Leadsom, has extended the deadline on application decisions for the Hornsea Three, Norfolk Vanguard and Thanet Extension offshore wind farms.

On 23 January, Energy and Clean Growth minister, Kwasi Kwarteng published a Written Ministerial Statement which confirmed that the decision on Hornsea Three had been shifted from 14 February to 1 June 2020. This is to allow for further information to be received and assessed, including any further consultation required.

The deadlines for the Norfolk Vanguard and Thanet Extension offshore wind farms – originally 10 and 11 December 2019 respectively – have also been pushed back to 1 June 2020 for the same reason.
