People are being urged to give their views on new information provided by the developer of a huge wind farm off the Norfolk coast
The government was due to make a decision on the Norfolk Vanguard wind farm by December 10 last year, but it was put back to June 1.
And now the Secretary of State is inviting comments from interested parties on the new environmental information provided by developer, Vattenfall, by April 27.
The offshore wind farm will comprise 158, down from the previous 180, wind turbines, and will be 47km offshore, at its closest point.
The project calls for the cabling to make landfall at Happisburgh and run over to a new substation to be built next to an existing one in Necton, between Dereham and Swaffham.
