Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm

An application has been submitted to the Planning Inspectorate by Triton Knoll Off Shore Wind Farm for 'development consent' for the Triton Knoll Electrical System

An application has been submitted to the Planning Inspectorate by Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm for 'development consent' for the Triton Knoll Electrical System which are the works required to connect the previously approved offshore wind farm (33km off the Lincolnshire Coast) of up to 288 turbines to the National Grid Substation at Bicker Fen.

The application is to be determined by the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change who will appoint an Examining Authority to consider the application.

The application was accepted by the Minister on 21 May 2015 and the applicant is now required to publicise that its application has been accepted for examination. The Examining Authority now has three months in which to prepare for the examination and the National Infrastructure Planning website will describe how a body can register to become an interested party to the application. Persons so will normally have 28 days from the invitation to register within which to register.

Up to date information can be found at the National Infrastructure Planning website which can be entered by following the link below:

This is not a planning application in the normal sense and it does not fall to be determined by the Borough Council. All representations on the application for consent should be made to the Examining Authority. However, a full copy of the application is available for Inspection in the Borough Council offices, by appointment.
