APPLICATION FOR A DEVELOPMENT CONSENT ORDER BY THE PLANNING INSPECTORATE UNDER SECTION 56 OF THE PLANNING ACT 2008 East Anglia TWO Offshore Windfarm – APPLICATION REFERENCE EN010078 Dear Sirs I write to you on behalf of East Anglia THREE Limited with regard to the above application. Whilst the East Anglia THREE East Anglia TWO projects share the same parent company, they are being developed by separate project companies and as such are separate commercial entities. East Anglia THREE Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of ScottishPower Renewables (SPR) which in turn is part of the Iberdrola Group, a world leader in clean energy and the leading wind energy producer worldwide. SPR is at the forefront of the development of the renewables industry and is contributing towards providing cost effective energy security for the UK, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and maximising economic opportunities through investment in the UK. East Anglia THREE Limited fully supports the Development Consent Order applications made by East Anglia TWO Limited. The project will make a significant contribution to the UK’s renewable energy supply and consequently help provide significant benefits in terms of local and regional economic growth, energy security and decarbonisation. The East Anglia TWO project will continue SPR’s investment in East Anglia as part of our East Anglia HUB initiative, where to date SPR has already spent, or has committed to spending (through the East Anglia ONE project), over £75 million with businesses across the East of England, providing significant jobs and investment to the region. The East Anglia ONE project has also facilitated further investments of £30m in port infrastructure at Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth. East Anglia THREE is 45km from East Anglia TWO. The East Anglia THREE Offshore Export Cable Corridor passes through the East Anglia TWO Windfarm site and Offshore Cable Corridor approximately in an East to West trajectory. East Anglia TWOs draft Development Consent Order includes Protective Provisions to protect the integrity of East Anglia Three Limited’s offshore assets where interaction between the projects occurs. East Anglia THREE Limited consider this is the appropriate mechanism to ensure its assets are protected in the future and will continue to liaise with East Anglia TWO Limited during subsequent phases of the project to ensure these protective provisions are adhered to. Yours faithfully Ross Ovens Project Director On behalf of East Anglia THREE Limited
