There are hundreds of documents that make up SPR's Applications and we hope that this small selection will assist you in the issue(s) you have chosen to write about in your Written Representation (WR). When referring to any documents, please use the prefix APP-XXX so the Inspectors can find it easily.
You may wish to first read section para 31.3 of "Chapter 31 – Conclusions" as it will give you a taste of what SPR’s desk top studies reveal and their views on each Chapter– mainly: they will mitigate, there is no impact, there is minimal impact, there is no measurable impact (ie no desk top studies to reference), the Decommission effects will be no worse than the Construction effects of 4-7 years up to 30 years of operation and they don't state how long Decommission will take. There are many more areas where there is not enough information. We need to challenge these.

During the recent development consent order hearings (DCO), the Suffolk Energy Action Solutions group (SEAS) brought to the attention of the inspectors the fact that Scottish Power Renewables (SPR) are using “gagging” clauses in their agreements with landowners involved in the planning process for their offshore wind farms, EA1N and EA2. These clauses offer financial incentives to individuals and groups to withdraw objections and/or desist from objecting to their plans. There can be no justification for making payments or imposing conditions which undermine a statutory planning inquiry conducted in accordance with public law principles.
