Hornsea Project Three Offshore Wind Farm

Received 20 July 2018
From Cllr. Georgina Perry-Warnes

Representation

Choice of transmission system: should be DC technology
Phasing of the Project and Associated Construction Timetable(s): one phase preferable to two
Working Corridor of onshore cable route should be as small as possible
Use of Horizontal Directional Drilling onshore: to reduce environmental and social impact
Onshore HVAC Booster Station: if DC technology is not used, traffic and overall impact needs careful management. Mitigation measures to comply with minimum statutory requirements would not be enough.
Impact of construction traffic: the impact on tourism and local businesses as well as the day to day life of the community needs maximum consideration.
Landscape & Biodiversity Mitigation: measures should exceed minimum statutory requirements
Community Benefits: there needs to be local benefit to help compensate for the local disruption for a project undertaken in the national interest. There are many 'not spots' in the area, as well as slow broadband, so improvements to these would help local businesses and the wider community in the long term.
