RenewableUK statement on Norfolk Vanguard offshore wind farm High Court ruling

Commenting on today’s High Court ruling on Vattenfall’s 1.8GW Norfolk Vanguard offshore wind farm project, RenewableUK’s Deputy Chief Executive Melanie Onn said:

"If the UK is serious about achieving the Prime Minister's target of 40 gigawatts of offshore wind by 2030, we need major projects like Norfolk Vanguard to go ahead as swiftly as possible. Developing new offshore wind projects will bring billions in new investment to the UK and create tens of thousands of high-quality jobs after the pandemic. 

"We hope the Government will examine today's judgement carefully and respond in a way that supports meaningful action against the most dangerous threat to our planet - climate change. This is especially important in the year when we are hosting COP26, as new projects are vital to maintain the UK's global lead in offshore wind".

 

Background:

A High Court judge has quashed permission to build one of the world's largest offshore wind farms off the east coast of England.

The Norfolk Vanguard Offshore Wind Farm was granted development consent in July by the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). But now a judge overturned the decision following legal action from a man living near a planned cable route onshore.
