Awel y Môr Offshore Wind Farm, Irish Sea off the coast of North Wales Dear Sirs, I refer to the Application quoted above, NATS has assessed the application and has identified an unacceptable impact on its infrastructure, specifically the St. Annes and Great Dun Fell Primary Surveillance Radars. No impact is anticipated on NATS’s Clee Hill radar. NATS has been engaged with the Applicant over recent years and following its assessment, has proceeded to investigate mitigation measures. These technical measures are tangible and within NATS’s control; negotiations are currently ongoing with the Applicant in order to secure their funding and implementation. While a formal agreement is not yet in place, NATS has no reason to believe that this will not be forthcoming in the very near future. While its position is that of objecting to the application, NATS is confident that it will soon be in a position to support planning conditions. As soon as formal agreement is reached with the Applicant, NATS will submit a further representation confirming this. Yours faithfully Mr Sacha Rossi For and on behalf of NATS En-Route plc
