The developers of the Mona offshore wind farm have now opened a non-statutory public consultation, this will give residents and landowners the opportunity to provide feed back on the onshore cable routes that have been identified, as well as any other concerns that they may have. The consultation runs from the 7th June to the 3rd August, details of consultation can be found at https://www.morganandmona.com/en/ and will also include several public exhibitions.
Landowners in the area may have already been contacted for access to land for environmental surveys, and moving forwards, the scheme expect to have submit their DCO application in late 2023, with a decision by the Secretary of State on whether to approve the scheme in 2025 and construction commencing thereafter.
Those in the area will already be aware of the Awel Y Mor offshore windfarm, which is seeking on onshore cable route further to the east of Rhyl, from our experience representing a significant number of landowners and occupiers on this scheme, we recommend that those who may be affected by the routes identified engage with the scheme and register their concerns through the consultation process.
Please do not hesitate to contact Jonathan Bell at the office on 01829 773000 for more advice if you are affected by this scheme.
