Energy firm Vattenfall have invited the public to give their views on the impact of one of the world’s largest wind farms, to be built off the north Norfolk coast.

The Swedish power giant behind the Norfolk Vanguard and Norfolk Boreas wind farms has published a statement of community consultation into the Boreas project, ahead of opening a public consultation period next month.

The Boreas wind farm would be situated 73km east of the north Norfolk coast and consist of between 90 and 200 turbines.

Power generated there would come onshore at Happisburgh, and connect to the National Grid at a Necton substation, via underground cables.

The consultation statement is available to view free of charge at the following locations:

• Aylsham Library

• Breckland District Council

• Broadland District Council

• Dereham Library

• Great Yarmouth Borough Council

• North Norfolk District Council

• North Walsham Library

• Norwich City Council

• Norwich Millenium Library

• Swaffham Library

It can also be read online at www.vattenfall.co.uk/norfolkboreas.

The public consultation period will open on Wednesday, November 7, and end at 11.59pm on Sunday, December 9.

During this time comments on the project from the public will be received by Vattenfall.
