Navitus Bay wind farm scaled back - statement

7 Feb 2014
I am writing on behalf of Navitus Bay Development Ltd to inform you that we will today be announcing plans to scale back the proposed wind park by removing the northernmost part of the development, known as the "top triangle". The move comes in response to feedback received from the public and statutory consultees during the final round of consultation last year, and demonstrates our genuine commitment to listen and act upon the responses we received.

The development will now cover an area of 155 km², compared to 175 km² under the previous boundary, and the maximum number of turbines that will be built, based on the use of the 5MW model, will fall from 218 to 194. If the wind park is granted planning consent, it will generate a maximum capacity of 970MW of low carbon energy. I enclose a map providing further details of the boundary change for your information, as well as a table setting out the new distances from shore of the nearest turbine.

Further to the previous scaling back of the site in December 2012, today's announcement will significantly reduce the visual impact of the development from all viewpoints along the coast in Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. We therefore hope this boundary change will address many of the concerns which members of the local community have previously raised about the project, in particular its visual impact, while ensuring that the project can continue to make a significant contribution to the UK's energy security.
