The Crown Estate has undertaken a leasing round, known as ‘Round 3’, for the next generation of offshore wind farms in UK waters. The Round 3 proposals comprise nine development zones, which are located around the UK. Following the negotiation and signing of a Zone Development Agreement (ZDA), a single successful bidder will be awarded exclusive development rights for offshore wind farms in each zone. The ZDAs will not be signed until the HRA process is complete.
