In line with the requirements of the Electricity Works (Environmental Impact Assessment) (England and Wales) Regulations 2000, an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has been undertaken for the proposed Cirrus Shell Flat Array (CSFA) Offshore Windfarm to ensure that all significant environmental impacts resulting from the development have been identified and assessed. The EIA examines the need for the project; the design of the windfarm (and associated works); impacts that may result from the construction, operation and decommissioning of the development and appropriate mitigation measures to minimise such impacts. A combination of field surveys, desktop surveys and modelling techniques have been used to assess the potential impacts of the proposed windfarm. In addition consultations have been undertaken with both statutory and non-statutory consultees, interested parties and the public. The complete EIA document is provided within this series.
