Forewind has produced a Statement of Community Consultation (SoCC) specifically for Dogger Bank Teesside A&B on how it will consult with the local community including residents living within a specified distance of the project, the general public, community groups, local businesses, technical consultees and land owners, as well as others who work in or use the area, both offshore and onshore.

Consultation on Dogger Bank Teesside A & B was carried out in two formal phases.

- Phase One (May-June 2012)

This consultation phase covered both Dogger Bank Teesside A & B and Dogger Bank Teesside C & D under the umbrella of "Dogger Bank Teesside". The Preliminary Environmental Information 1 documents and other consultation materials are available to download here.

- Phase Two (4 November to 20 December 2013)

This consultation phase is now complete and responses will be incorporated where possible into the final development consent order application to be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate in Q2 2014. The consultation materials can still be viewed here - Preliminary Environmental Information  - and they include drafts of the Environmental Statement (ES), Non–Technical Summary, and plans and maps detailing the nature and location of Dogger Bank Teesside A & B.

Application and Examination

The Planning Inspectorate formally accepted the Dogger Bank Teesside A&B development consent order application for examination on 23 April 2014 and the six-month examination process began on 5 August, and ended on 5 February 2015.
