Description

Centrica Renewable Energy Ltd. (CREL) on behalf of GLID Wind Farms TopCo Ltd. (GLID) proposes to
undertake blade replacement maintenance works for all turbines within the Lynn and Inner Dowsing (LID)
Offshore Wind Farms (OWF).
The LID 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 ross 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 Ltd. (EGS, 2011) in assessing the potential for impacts on the habitats and species
within the vicinity of the blade replacement works. This information will enable Natural England to provide
advice on any nature conservation issues in relation to the interest features of the cSAC.
