The next round of consultation events for the White Cross floating offshore windfarm project
are being held on the 28th and 29th March. The purpose of these events is to provide an update on the development of the project design and routing options and answer any questions that you may have about the project.
Consultation with stakeholders and local communities is a key part of the planning and
consenting processes that is strongly valued by the project team. We are actively seeking input; with all comments and opinions provided carefully considered and used to help shape our plans and support project decisions.
White Cross is a 100MW offshore wind project being developed in the Celtic Sea by Offshore
Wind Limited. The windfarm site is approximately 50km northwest off the North Devon and
Cornwall coast. It is a small pre-commercial size project consisting of between 6 and 8 turbines, and associated moorings. The turbines will be connected to land via a cable which is proposed to make landfall at the north end of Saunton Sands Beach. The onshore cable will then connect to the existing substation at East Yelland, south of the River Taw.
