We keep receiving letters from you regarding the development consent for the Dogger Bank Teesside. I have left 4 messages for someone to call me back to explain what response is required from us, but no one has returned my calls.
Could you please either stop sending the letters, or call me on the number below to explain what you require from us.

Advice given

Apologies that you?ve been unable to get in contact with us and that no one has returned your calls.
I thought rather than call I would respond by email as this will allow me to give you links to documents. This will hopefully allow you to appreciate why we are in contact with you.
The applicant ?Forewind Ltd? is proposing to construct an offshore wind farm in the Dogger Bank zone of the North Sea, which then has a subsea cable and an underground onshore cable connecting it to the National Grid at the Lackenby substation adjacent to the Wilton Industrial Complex.
As part of the construction and operation of that underground cable route the applicant is requesting compulsory acquisition powers that would enable it to acquire land, or rights over land, along that cable route. The applicant has identified that your company has an easement or right of way within the Wilton Complex that will need to be extinguished suspended or interfered with in order to facilitate construction or maintenance.
All rights and interests that are being compulsorily acquired are detailed in the table within this document (you will note that your interest is detailed on pg 129):

The numbers in the far left column (48, 49A etc) correspond to plots on Sheet 4 of the land plans, which can be found at the link below:

No response is required from you, however we do have a legal duty under the Planning Act 2008 to notify you along with all other affected persons. If you do wish to comment on the affect that these proposals have on your operations or interests then you may do so, however please be aware that we are now some way through a 6-month examination period which will close on or before 5 February 2015. This means that any comment should now be submitted as a matter of urgency.
The examination timetable and project website can be found here:
