Description

Centrica Renewable Energy Ltd (CREL) on behalf of GLID Wind Farms TopCo Limited (GLID)
proposes to decommission and remove the trial pile (test pile) within the Lynn Offshore Wind Farm
(OWF) site.
The Lynn OWF site lies within the boundary of the Inner Dowsing, Race Bank and North Ridge
cSAC. Some of the qualifying features for which this cSAC is proposed under the Habitats
Directive are: 'sandbanks which are slightly covered by the sea at all times' and 'reefs', in this case
biogenic reefs of the worm Sabellaria spinulosa (JNCC, 2010). Consultation was therefore
undertaken with Natural England who advised on using the most recent dataset showing the
locations of Annex I habitats within the area, as provided by Earth Sciences & Surveying (EGS) Ltd
(EGS, 2011). This information will enable Natural England to provide advice on any nature
conservation issues in relation to the interest features of the cSAC.
