  • Consultation on proposed offshore wind farm closes in 12 days
  • More than 250 attended consultation events on the project’s latest proposals
  • Online consultation runs until Friday 09 December 2022 with details to be found here.


More than 250 people attended the recent consultation events on the proposed southern North Sea offshore wind farm, North Falls, which is carrying out its second consultation phase until Friday 9 December 2022.

North Falls is a proposed extension to the existing 504-megawatt Greater Gabbard Offshore Wind Farm, comprising an offshore array area of 150km2 off the East Anglia coast and an onshore grid connection in Tendring, Essex.

Five face-to-face events were held in Tendring, Essex along with two webinars, which were designed to give the local community the chance to find out more about the project and talk to members of the project team. The local events in Frinton-on-Sea, Great Bromley, Tendring, Thorpe-le -Soken and Ardleigh, and the two webinars, were held during November.

The online consultation portal remains live and the project team urge anyone who would like to feed their comments in to the project to do so via the consultation portal before the closure date.

North Falls Offshore Wind Farm is being developed by a 50/50 joint venture company owned equally by SSE Renewables and RWE.
