Forewind has produced a Statement of Community Consultation (SoCC) for the proposed Dogger Bank Teesside and its associated infrastructure. The SoCC explains how Forewind 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 will be carried out in two formal phases.
Phase One (May-June 2012)
During this phase, Forewind clearly explained the site selection work done to date, including the process to narrow down the locations of the offshore wind farms, landfalls and converter stations. Stakeholders were invited to provide comments on the proposals while local people were specifically asked for information on issues to be considered when choosing the precise locations for onshore and offshore elements of the project.
The consultation period for these documents is now closed however comments may be given consideration if possible. They can be submitted by:

Phase Two (anticipated to be 2013)
