Essex consultation events start next week
North Falls Offshore Wind Farm is being developed in the southern North Sea more than 20km off the UK coast and covers a total area of 150km². It is an extension project to the existing 504MW Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm.
The development process has been ongoing since Autumn 2020 and to date has included onshore and offshore surveys, desk-based assessments, engagement with statutory consultees, data gathering and two consultation phases. Work continues on the project proposals as they are refined in advance of application submission.
As well as generating much needed green electricity, North Falls will bring numerous benefits by way of jobs, local economy and involvement within the local communities.
