New Smaller Navitus Bay Wind Farm Proposal Submitted


Published at 6:36am 10th November 2014.

A SECOND Navitus Bay wind farm proposal for off the Dorset coast has been submitted.

This one's about two thirds the size of the one already before the Planning Inspectorate.

Navitus Bay bosses say they're full committed to the original 970 Mega Watt plan but have produced a second option with a capacity of 630 Mega watts  after the planning Inspectorate asked if it was likely to submit a proposal with fewer turbines.

In the smaller scheme, the nearest turbines would be located further away from the coast.

In a statement, Navitus say they have confidence in their original plan but the secretary of state can now consider which option strikes the right balance between its benefits and impacts
