Two of three Norfolk wind farms given consent

The government last week consented to the construction of two wind farms off the Norfolk Coast with a combined capacity of over 1GW.

The two wind farms at Race Bank (580MW) and Dudgeon (560MW) in the Greater Wash could generate enough electricity to power around 730,000 homes. The projects represent around £3bn of investment.

However, a third application for a site at Docking Shoal, also off the Norfolk Coast, was refused due to the potential impact on Sandwich terns that are specially protected by environmental legislation.
