Hornsea Project Three Offshore Wind Farm

Received 01 July 2018
From Savills (UK) Ltd (Savills (UK) Ltd) on behalf of Blue Sky Leisure


I am writing on behalf of our client Blue Sky Leisure. Blue Sky Leisure is a successful family company with a long track record of delivering high quality tourist and leisure facilities including a diverse range of accommodation from camping through to log cabins within North Norfolk and especially within the area of the proposed Hornsea Project Three Offshore Wind Farm.

Our client’s concerns are;

North Norfolk is an AONB and a renowned tourist destination.

The significant adverse landscape and visual effects on the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the AONB would be contrary to the primary purpose of the designation and the national duty to conserve and enhance the area’s natural.

The scale, form, design, appearance and cumulative impacts of the proposals would significantly adversely affect visual amenity, local environment, economy and the recreational/tourist use

Having been involved in the destination promotion in Norfolk for over 25 years the figures produced in Orsted’s Socioeconomics chapter of the PEIR are considerably understated, out of date and/ or inaccurate.

Orsted have failed to provide adequate mitigation, as the data being used to determine these provisions is incorrect, especially in terms of traffic, transport, noise and vibration.

Orsted have failed to provide details/responses to queries raised.

Our client respectfully requests that these points are considered fully within the examination process and intends to submit a full written representation in due course. In addition, if appropriate, they request to make oral representations.
