RYA to examine navigational risk assessment for Navitus Bay Wind Park

Navitus Bay Wind Park

The RYA has been informed by Eneco Wind UK Ltd (Eneco) and EDF Energy Renewables that they are formally submitting their application for consent to develop the Navitus Bay Wind Park on the south coast to the Planning Inspectorate today, 10 April.

Stuart Carruthers Cruising Manager 'Naturally, if the application is accepted for examination, the RYA will be registering with the Planning Inspectorate as an interested party in order to represent recreational boating interests.

'The RYA raised a number of navigational issues with the developer during the consultation stage which were satisfactorily addressed.

'Now that the full application has been completed we will want to understand how shipping and navigation will be affected and how the marine navigational safety risks have been assessed in the application documents'.

The application will include full supporting documentation covering every aspect of the development - this includes navigational safety, recreational amenity, and environmental concerns and must contain evidence that the developer has consulted fully with the local community and has taken their views into account.

The Planning Inspectorate now has 28 days to decide whether the application can proceed to examination. If accepted, the application and all the supporting documents will be published on the Planning Inspectorate’s website; the process then moves to pre-examination.

Members of the public can get involved in the examination by registering as interested parties once the application has been accepted by the Planning Inspectorate. Details of how to register will be published by the developers and they will set the time period for registration which must be no less than 28 days. Those who register can provide a summary of their views when they register.

Within the planning Inspectorate, a panel of inspectors will be appointed as the examining authority.

The examination panel has six months to examine the application. This is normally done by written representations, however hearings can also be held to examine certain aspects of the application.

Once the examination is complete the examination panel has three months to write its recommendation and submit it to the Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change who will make the final decision.
