Amended plans for a large wind farm project off the north Norfolk coast will be up for scrutiny this week.

The public exhibition for the approved Dudgeon Offshore Wind Farm will be held at Merchants' Place, Church Street, Cromer, between noon and 7pm on Wednesday July 10.

Originally the project would have included 168 wind turbine generators 20 miles off the Cromer coast.

But following a review by Norwegian companies Statoil and Statkraft, which acquired the £1.5bn project last year, the number of proposed generators has been reduced to 78.

Dudgeon Offshore Wind Limited hopes to make a formal application to vary the conditions of the application to the Marine Management Organisation and the government's Department of Energy and Climate Change.
