From Natural England
“Natural England is a non-departmental public body established under the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006 (‘NERC Act’). Natural England is the statutory advisor to Government on nature conservation in England and promotes the conservation of England’s wildlife and natural features . Natural England’s remit extends to the territorial sea adjacent to England, up to the 12 nautical mile limit from the coastline. Pursuant to an authorisation made on 9 December 2013 by the JNCC under paragraph 17(c) of Schedule 4 to the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006, Natural England is authorised to exercise the JNCC’s functions as a statutory consultee in respect of applications for offshore renewable energy installations in offshore waters (0-200 nm) adjacent to England. This application was included in that authorisation and, therefore, Natural England will be providing statutory advice in respect of that delegated authority.
Natural England has provided a detailed Relevant Representation letter and an associated Annex directly to the Planning Inspectorate's project-specific email address.
